I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.

I’m sorry Steve I was unable to make it to the funeral home
but you were in my thoughts and prayers. I know what it’s like to be caregiver from my own personal experience as you have been and you were very dedicated to your mom. God bless you and your family and I’m glad I got to meet your mom on the many times you brought her into Eat’n Park.
