We wanted to express our sympathies to you at this your time of grief we pray you be strengthened in the days ahead. We like to share a thought that gave us comfort. At Daniel 12:2 , “And many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up, some to everlasting life …” May this thought bring you comfort as it did our family during our time of loss.

I remember her kindness to everyone. I remember her wit and her ability to make me laugh. Most of all–being able to talk about with her about anything. She was big on families staying together, and keeping up with family. She was my go-to person and I will forever miss her and hold her in my heart along with my mother Sylvia; her sister.
