    With Deepest Sympathy
    Death is but a stepping stone to that eternal life
    In which there's no unhappiness, not suffering or strife,
    And your loved one is at peace and lives on in a place
    Where there is light and gladness, and we see God face to face.
  3. Joyce smith
    So sorry for your family. Prayers
    For all.
