Jim, Kathy, Marilyn and families. I was saddened to hear that mom passed away. She was a very sweet gal and I wish I could have helped get her "out of her shell" while she was here. I feel blessed that I got to be in her life; if even for a short while. Hugs to all of you. Cathy

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth! I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.
