At this time of sorrow & loss in your life, remember that we are never truly alone, but part of something greater. Though it is difficult to be separated from the one you love so much, hold onto the belief that there is a purpose beyond our own & that some day the circle of life will complete & we will all be together & we will understand. Tante Hilda has gone from our sight but never from our memories. Memories keep those we love close to us forever. To all of the cherished moments of the past, to the blessings & laughter, the joys & celebrations the sorrow & tears. They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays that we shared & spent together.
We are truly sorry for your loss, we share the sorrow & extend our deepest sympathy.
