I would like to offer my deepest condolences to your family. In times like these the Bible have proven to be of great comfort. The Bible book of John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 holds out the hope of resurrection for our loved ones who have past; and Joshua chapter 21 verse 45 let’s us know that God fulfills his promises. I hope that these Bible verses will bring your family some comfort. For further comfort please visit jw.org

Mom was a simple woman. She enjoyed talking about her childhood and remembering the "good old days." Her family meant a lot to her and she loved each and every one of us. Mom enjoyed family gatherings, we were the first to arrive and the last to leave. She liked going to McDonalds and meeting up with family there. Mom did not like to have her picture taken but we talked her into it anyway. I will miss Mom she was a rock for me and was a great listener. She has been in my day to day life, but somehow I will find a way to go on without her. After all she is only a memory away..... Just me, Kelley
