My deepest condolences go to the McNorton family. It is evident that Geraldine was loved by her family and friends. At James 4:8, we are encouraged to draw close to our heavenly father and he will draw close to us. He will provide us with the strength that we need to cope with your difficult loss. I hope you can find some encouragement in these words.

I am very sorry for your loss. However, you can take comfort in the message found at 1 Peter 5: 7. It says to throw all your anxiety upon God because he cares for you.?

Granny,
You are missed so much! We never expected you to go so fast. The Lord give and he takes and he made sure you lived a long life of ups and downs. I am happy to know you are in Heaven now with Dad. I'm also at peace now and knowing you are no longer hurting. Our pain of losing you will pass, but we never will forget you. This past four months have been long suffering on your body mentally and physically. I don't regret one moment of taking care of you and would do it all over again. We had more ups than down moments together this past year and I enjoyed every one. I wouldn't trade our time spent together. Thank You Lord For Keeping Her Safe! Love, Hugs and Kisses Granny (bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck)
