The family has my deepest sympathy. I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of your dear beloved. I was thinking of something to say to ease the tremendous pain that your family is suffering. So I compiled this list of scriptures that is sure to bring you comfort in this difficult time: Psalms 55:22; Proverbs 3: 5 & 6; Isaiah 41:10; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7; James 4:8; and Revelation 21:4. Be strong. Cherish the memories. May the peace of God be with your family, & remember to call upon his name found at Psalms 83:18.

Eddy, Elaine, Todd, Troy, Tony, and family,

Thank you for sharing Meemaw with me. She was a wonderful lady and will be sadly missed. Her testimony should give you comfort that she is with Jesus. It was an honor to work with her at JRs. She was also an encouragement to me when my Grandma Dollie was at Clark's Nursing Home. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
