Ruth was a very caring and concerned neighbor and I will miss her. She was my second sight when my kids were growing up and I wasn't always available. I knew she would let me know if there was anything I should be aware of because she was on the job. To Ruth's family I'm sorry for your loss of this wonderful woman.

Dear Belda Family,
I recently read about the death of your loved one wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
I also wanted to share some good news regarding your loss. In the bible book of Revelation 21:1-4 we are promised that in the near future ALL pain, suffering and even death will be no more. this is because according to 1John4:8 God is love.
I hope these few words will bring you a measure of comfort now and in the days to come.
