  2. Dear David and family,
    Deuteronomy 33:27 says,”The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms:…” IN times like these there is no place of rest and comfort like God’s strong arms. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Knowing my aunt, she is having a party in Heaven right now with all of her loved ones that have gone one before her – including her brother (my dad) and grandma (her mom). Heaven received her with open arms! She was a wonderful aunt – I was blessed to have such great memories with her and my uncle. I will truly miss her. My heart goes out to my uncle, their kids and grand kids and her brother.
