And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will sustain and help support your families to endure. During this difficult time and in the months to follow. My deepest condolences to all of your loved ones.

Remembering Lauras Mom Betty talking and crying with my Mom about how sick her precious Laura was as a child.Laura was a warrior & didnt just survive but thrived with an active, joyful life. While grieving the loss of their sister and Mom, praying her family finds comfort and peace knowing Laura is resting in perfect peace and joy in celebrating her life.Good memories last forever.Sending my love, Jackie
