    All our love and prayers go to you Jane, Jerry and Valerie as well as Yvonda, Myrl, Sharon and Donnie. We will certainly miss sister and Aunt Mildred but we take our comfort in knowing she is with Jesus and rejoicing in Heaven with Him and our Heavenly Father and all those loved ones who had gone before. What rejoicing! Now they await us. Let us praise our Lord for His glory that she has received! We have that hope that one day will be realized if we are faithful and Jesus will keep us faithful. We wished we could be there with you! We love you all! Love Brother Dale and children & grandchildren

    Love and Prayers Jane, Jerry and Valerie. I know there is a sadness and void that you are feeling as this is the part of us that want to keep them with us but we know that they are in a far better place. Aunt Mil, is with her Heavenly Father first and foremost, as he welcomed her home and then her earthly family to greet her as well. Oh what a homecoming, nothing that any of us here could ever begin to imagine someday though if we can stay true to our faith and hold on we will share in those same rejoicings. May you feel God’s peace , love and comfort in the days that lie ahead.
    We love you all very much.

    Love and Prayers Jane, Jerry and Valerie. I know there is a sadness and void that you are feeling as this is the part of us that want to keep them with us but we know that they are in a far better place.
    I know you would not want to call her back here, to watch her suffer any more.
    Remember the good memories, which I am sure there are many, I for one will never forget her Cabbage Rolls, wish I had one now !
    Just sit back and imagine her making them at the Marriage supper in Heaven.
    Don’t you know it was a wonderful site, when she went through those Pearly Gates, first to be greeted by her Heavenly Father , then when her Earthly Family said to her Welcome Home.
    Some Day We will meet again if we can stay true to our faith and just hang on a little bit longer, don’t believe it is going to be much longer.
    We love you all and will be in our prayers.
