    So sorry to hear of her passing. I always loved visiting with her. She will be missed until we see her again in heaven.

  8. Hi, I’m very sorry for your loss. I found this scripture at Acts 24:15 of comfort when I lost my relative. It reads “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” I hope you find this of comfort in your time of loss.
