The family wishes to extend their gratitude to our friends and family that have showed us love and support and the memory that our beloved mother left behind. Losing a mother often feels as if you have lost everything; however, our faith brings us closer to God because he reassures us that she is not gone.
“I assure you that whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and won’t come under judgment but has passed from death into life.” John 5:24
Your family will patiently wait for the moment we reunite in heaven to spend our eternal lives praising God together.
