Memories Timeline


  1. Judy and I wish to offer our condolences and prays to Aunt Mary and all family members. As you may or may not know I recently had knee surgery and I am recuperating right now,the ride from where I live would be too long to be in the car. Tony was always a gentleman to me and my family may he rest in peace.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort give you peace and help during this time. Something that always helps me when facing situations like these, is the scripture at Revelation 21:4, where it says "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." I'm sure you can understand why that helps me. I sincerely hope it can help you too.
