- I'm so sorry for your loss. I personally have known the loss of a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. I found comfort in Acts 24:15, where it says: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."
We will see our loved ones again! I hope this brings some comfort to you in this time of sadness.
- Steve, so sorry to hear this. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and big hugs from both of us.
- This amazing woman was like a mother to me. She will be greatly missed.
- I loved this woman so much. I feel my life was better for knowing Miss Jeannie!!! She will be missed by so many.
