Memories Timeline


  1. Teresa and family, I am so sorry for your loss a wonderful, kind, loving person. I am sure she is up in heaven with Leda and they are having a ball. I wish these two could have been with us on earth a while longer. I am sure they will be watching over us.

  2. I know that this is a sad day for your family. Facing the loss of a dear loved one is such a devastating event. I too have experienced such a loss. I am praying that your family will use the comfort from the scriptures to help you to endure….Rev.21:3,4.
