      Hello Bonnie. Just wanted to tell you I appreciate so much your thoughtful message. I am not very text savvy so please forgive me for not responding sooner. I miss Momma and Daddy so much everyday. I miss your sweet parents too as I know you do. I hope you are doing well. I remember going with Momma a few times to visit you. She really cared and loved you and your son. It was a very difficult time. Love, Joan

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. While no words can erase the pain of your loss. We can look forward to the promise at Revelation 21:4, “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.” Death and pain was never God’s purpose for us. However, when this promise is fulfilled, we will enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…life forever on earth. (Psalm 37:11)
