    Terri, Ronald, Rhonda and Family,

    We are sorry for the loss of such a valuable person in your life. We were shocked and saddened to hear about your mother’s death. Moms are special people, especially Elizabeth. I, myself admired her. She was warm and caring. Over the years after Aunt Marcy, Uncle Syl and Jackie passed, your mother and I would talk. She would call me and say, “Tricia Ann.. you’ve been on my mind are you ok?” or I would call her and say, “Elizabeth how are you, the kids and grandchildren?”. Sometime our talks would be long and some short, and could be many months apart. But we had an unspoken relationship which was created through love for one another. I was most grateful when Terri brought her to visit us here in Indianapolis a few years ago…what a time we had. She was all about family.

    I would like to think that the values and lessons that Moms teach their children make Moms immortal as they influence lives over generations.

    There are times in life when our hearts are broken and we can’t see beyond our circumstances. I am praying that Jehovah grants you strength at this time and he gives you comfort that is as good as a mother’s touch. May Elizabeth’s love for you be what you remember most. Someone once said, “Grief is really love. It’s the love you want to give but can’t and is just love with no place to go”.
    Death can’t separate you from the love you have for your mother. It can’t take away your memories either. In the end, love is stronger than death.

    I believe as we grow older we learn that being family means more than being people who just share a last name or a family tree. Family are people who are there for each other when times get tough and want the best for each other. Elizabeth understood this.

    We are forever blessed that Jehovah God connected us all to Elizabeth through family.

    May you feel Jehovah’s love making you stronger in the coming months. Remember, when you can’t, He can. When you are most alone…He is intimately present. When it is the darkest, He is the only Light you need.

    Love , Tricia Ann and Family

    To the family of Elizabeth, you truly have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one. Death is one of the most difficult situations to face. God knows your pain and He promises at Revelation 21:4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” May you find comfort in knowing that the dead will be restored back to perfect life! – Acts 24:15; Romans 6:7

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (KJV), Glory to the Father…… I am so sorry for your loss. May you have comfort in knowing that God loves you and will sustain you through this difficult time. May God’s love shower you, comfort you, and give you assurance that he has received his precious child home. John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (KJV)
    May God Bless you and sustain you through this time.
