Words from the Family
God looked around his garden and found an empty place and then looked down upon the earth and saw your face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest in his garden. He knew you were suffering, he knew you were pain, so he closed your eyes and whispered “Peace be with Thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you when God called you home. We love you, we will miss you and we’ll see you soon. May God Bless you all.
