“Father into your hands I commend my spirit ……..” LUKE 24:36
Jesus has promised a welcome above, with shouts of rejoicing, for those that we love…..and though we feel sad now, in time we will all be together with Jesus in eternity.”

We would like to thank all who have prayed, cried, and lived through this transition with us….there are too many to list, at the end of the day, find peace in knowing, the sadness is temporary, the joy of everlasting life and peace for her soul is reassuring, as one day we all must take that journey. Remember to cherish the time we have, an to love one another today, for tomorrow may be to late.
