Dear Ones, I'm sorry for the loss of your Mother. Over the last couple of years since my Mother's passing, Donnie has been like a second Mom. We will miss her dearly but thankful she knew Jesus and is now in Heaven with our Lord and Savior.

You're in our thoughts and prayers, Love Debbie and Liz

My husband and I would like express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Donelda. Although we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Donelda personally, we do understand the pain of losing one so dear to our hearts. We would like to share with you comfort we have experienced from Gods word found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. Our Heavenly Father is truly a wonderful source of comfort, he is always there for the broken hearted and he truly cherishes you. ( Psalm 34:18, 1 Peter 5:7) Please take a few moments, share your memories with those who surround you, for the memories shared are the ones most truly cherished, may they bring you comfort and peace as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
