I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my
dear mother and found great comfort in the words
of Jesus at John 11:11-14, where he liken death to
being asleep, and at John 5:28,29 - "All those in the
memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."
For more comfort, I turn to website: www.jw.org

My Aunt was one very special lady. Always a smile on her face and always wanted to know how you were doing. She was truly one of a kind and I know that God has one GREAT angel in his midst. Lord, be good to her....she deserves only the best! You may be gone, but you will NEVER be forgotten. You are forever with me. I love you and until we meet again!

I love you Grandma and I will miss you. I enjoyed the times Natalie and I made "stew" at your house, our times doing crafts, teaching you how to play "kitty", and all the time we spent together over the years. Love you dearly and rest in peace.

Family lunch. Had an enjoyable time with the Theisen family. Lots of laughs, good food and made a great memory.

even though I only met her a few times, Virgina was a kind hearted woman who loved her grandchildren. She will be missed by many.
