Memories Timeline


  1. I’m sorry for your loss, pain and suffering. Whenever we lose a loved one in death we feel a sting and a void in our hearts, as if someone ripped part of our heart out. The pain seems like it will never go away. It will with time, or it will at least ease

  2. Lynn, I am praying for you and your family. The loss of a parent is truly life changing. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
