There are no words, but I’ll try.

May Aunt Carole rest in the Loving Arms of Our Heavenly Father and enjoy the vision of God, forever. May the music of the Angels be the sweetest sound that she hears with Our Savior’s Perfect Love!

May the many precious memories family and friends have of your beloved Carole bring peace and smiles to their hearts.

And, Uncle Bim, may God send comfort for your sorrow...Courage for each new day... Strength to face this journey... His Word to light your way... His Grace to fill your heart with peace to understand…and His Love to hold you gently in the Hollow of His Hand.

Please know that I care.
Connie Reilly (Dan & Jeanette Reilly’s daughter)
