"Death is something that we cannot sever, but love and memories last forever.." I know that your love one will be truly missed. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy . But in God word the Bible, he tells us about the wonderful promise of the resurrection, found at John 5::28, 29. Look forward to seeing your loved one again.

Tootsie was my very beautiful first cousin, whom I always admired. She will be greatly missed. I regret not spending more time with her in our later life. All of us should treasure our families and make sure they know that we love them. We are not promised tomorrow. My prayer for all my family is that they come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

correction to yesterday's posting: Polly Jo was Dot's niece--not her cousin.

Can you make that correction?

I will always remember my eldest cousin Polly Jo as a lovely southern lady. Most of our lives were spent in different states, and we didn't have the opportunity to know each other well. I do know that she was so proud of her three children! I pray for the comfort only God can give to you all.

Dear Family,

I was so sad to hear about Polly Jo. She and I were first cousins and very close friends growing up. I have been recuperating the last year from open heart surgery and had not been in touch. I will always remember the fun times we had together as young girls. The bible says God is very close to those whose hearts are breaking. May each of you feel his loving touch. (Husband Bennett for Dot)

I'm so sorry to hear of Mrs. Morgan's death. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
