Losing someone young is never expected and very difficult to accept. I am really sorry for your loss. At times like these spend time with your loved ones and take it easy on yourself. It is going to be a very bumpy road. I am sorry for your loss. May all the love that surrounds you give you strength. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

Deanna & Darrell Our sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. I was so upset to open the paper this evening and find her obituary. Our apologies for not being able to attend her services tonight. It was too late by the time I'd read the paper. She was such a wonderful lady in every sense of the word. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile! Hold tight those wonderful memories that you all have, they help us to get through these tough times! God bless you all.
