Life is so precious and so many ppl take it for granted. God gave up his only egotten son so that we may live forever....Elizabeth has that chance. A life without suffering and pain and no more death. The bible says the death will be brought to nothing. I pray God give you comfort at this difficult time.

There is always one teacher who inspires a child in a special way. For my son Brenton, that teacher was Mrs A. As his literacy teacher in first grade she saw how he liked to write and encouraged him. The following year he would stop at her classroom and share his writings with her. She told me how she loved to read them. His best year at Pine Forge was yet to come as she made 5th grade a good year for him. Thank you Mrs. Adukaitis. You will always be remembered by Brenton and me.

When someone you love dies, words can not expess the pain you go through, but we have God's promise of a new heaven and new earth, where death will be no more. This helps me and I hope it will help you too!

I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Betty. My mother always used the kindest words to describe her. I only had the honor of spending one day with her (@ the Nester Christmas Sibling Brunch.) I enjoyed talking with her so much. She was so open and honest about her health - even to me who she had just met. I also remember how Betty expressed her desire to exercise again. I hope she is biking freely now... I am so sorry for your loss, Uncle Richard.

Mrs. A,
I will be forever grateful to you for helping to make Trent's transition into a new school a pleasant one. With your thoughtful and loving personality you quickly became his favorite teacher. He enjoyed visiting your classroom after moving on to JH and was very happy to be able to visit you at Pine Forge again just a few weeks ago. You truly are a beautiful person inside and out. You will forever hold a place in our hearts. May you rest in peace.
