September 11, 2018

It was my privilege in June 2016 to visit with my Aunt Mary and her son , my cousin Larry at the Nursing home. We had a most excellent visit and much of the credit goes to Larry who supplied the picnic lunch with all the trimmings for us. This included my friend Audrey, who I was traveling with. I had not seen Mary or Larry for many years. It was a very special visit.
I have kept in contact with my aunt and cousin and I am saddened by the loss of my aunt. She was a very special person and will be missed very much . May Jehovah the God of all comfort be with all who grieve her loss and comfort each and every one as only he can with the resurrection hope when all those in his memory will be given life again.
With love and warm affection....Noel
