Please know that I hold you all close in my heart and prayers. Your Mom was a wonderful lady and I have good memories of visiting your home when I was young. I remember that she made the first cupcakes that I had ever had with sprinkles on them. A special memory for me since I remember it sixty years later. God bless you all. Much love.

I wish you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a peaceful paradise on the earth. (John 5:28, 29) Sincerely, S. Ellis
