The death of a loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are those who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with the family during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Aunt Anna, was full of spunk, strong, stubborn at times and had a great laugh. I remember how she took such great care of her mom, loved her brother, nephews and niece dearly. Spoke often of her family. Aunt Anna you lived a complete life, you have loved and were loved. I am sure you want us to have a celebration of your life, fun reminiscing . May you rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family and their loss.
