Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death brings great sorrow. Even Jesus Christ wept when Lazarus died John 11:35. But look forward to the day when our love ones will rise, they will rise. Isaiah 26:19. I hope this will bring you comfort at this difficult time.

I am sorry that I won't be able to attend Shirlene's services. I have such swelled up face & lips from allergy. I enjoyed working with her at Baxters. Always knew her loving family. Too soon after Ricky's passing. May God send you strength.
