Dear Family and Friends, Please accept my sincere condolences at this time of sorrow. May your many shared family thoughts and conversations of Joan bring fond memories and comfort. Psalm 34:18 reminds us that our loving Heavenly Father Jehovah is close to those that grieve and feel brokenhearted because death is an enemy that brings pain and emptiness to each family it touch. How heartwarming John 5:28-29 reassures us of the resurrection hope and we will see our love ones again as King Jesus promised on paradise earth and Revelation 21:3-4 guarantees no more death. thoughts a conversations bring fond memories and comfort.
