I am so sorry for your loss, but the Bible makes the promise: "Your dead ones will live...they will rise up" and it also says " the righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it" Isaiah 26:29 & Psalms 37:29.This gives us the hope to see our dead loved ones again. I hope this gives you comfort in your time of loss.

I was truly saddened to hear of Sally's passing but am comforted by the faithfulness of our God who now has her in the palm of his hand. I loved Sally as my "second mom" and spent many years sharing beautiful memories with her and the rest of her family. I loved our shopping excursions....she sure could shop!! I admired, respected, loved and honored her...she was a wonderful woman and I will forever have a very special place for her in my heart. I feel very blessed to have had the chance to know her. May God comfort Lori, Lisa & the rest of her family during this difficult time. I will cherish the fond memeories I have of her until we see each other again in the presence of God.Very Sincerely,Ellen

I can't begin to say how much Sally will be missed by many. I loved her, she has gone all too soon. I will hold many memories in my heart.
