    We are so sorry for your loss. She was such a wonderful, caring, giving person. She was loved by so many, touched the lives of so many, made a difference to so many. She offered her knowledge to those who would accept it. Her kindness was unending. I personally loved our chats at the salon, where we would solve the worlds problems in about an hour. Anna, you will be missed but never forgotten and always in our hearts. I know you will continue to watch over your family.

    Maria, I am sorry for your loss, The times I was at your moms house I was always made to feel at home, sit down eat, do you want more, something to drink, your mom’s kindness and wonderful love of life shows in her children. I am sure that love and kindness will be remembered everyday by someone who’s life she touched.

    Mr. Vern and Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Bithell was such a sweet lady! All of you are in my thoughts during this difficult time.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.
