  1. Mom, thank you for being such a wonderful mother and friend. My days are dimmer now that my sunshine is gone. Love you 'til eternity! 'Til we meet again, Mommy

  2. My sincerest condolences on the passing of your beloved family member. I hope that the words found in the biblie at Revelation 21:4 bring you and your family comfort as God promises to "wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore...". Other comforting scriptures are found in Isaiah 25:8 and 1 Peter 5:7 which I encourage you to read in your bible or you can read the bible online at jw.org. May God's peace be with you.
