    I am so sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one is so difficult to cope with. What a wonderful promise we have from God in John 5:28 and Psalm 37:29, that soon we will welcome back our loved ones on a a paradise earth. These terrible things will not be remembered..Revelation 21:4. May you find comfort in these words.

    You have my condolences in the loss of your mother and grandmother, she was a distant cousin her grandmother and my great grandfather were brother and sister. Naida (young) Standing

    I’m so sorry for the loss of you mother. It was always a joy to talk with Pat (and Johnny). They were two of my favorite people. She must have loved pansies because when we were young, she always had beautiful pansies in her front yard. Even after all these years, I think of her when I see them. Yes, pansies in Kipling and her peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses on top. Good memories. She will be missed.
