Heartfelt condolences to Frankie and all of Aunt Annie’s family. She could light up a room with her smile, laughter and presence. She will be sorely missed. We can console ourselves that she is now in heaven with the love of her life, Marion, and is no longer grieving his loss.

I would like to extend my condolences to the family at this difficult time, and I hope that these words will help them to endure. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Peace be with you.
