Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with Mrs. Katie, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21: 4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18 )knows the many tears you cry and he will sustain you if you let him. I was thinking of you and hoping that you can find comfort during this difficult time.

GRANDMA was my "chat" buddy, a good person and she raised a great young man. We promised her to look after you and you know we have always been here for you & will continue to be. Losing her has left a hole in many lives but remember She loved you so much and was so proud of you
