  1. Evans family :

    Our thoughts are with you all.
    In just a little while all of the pain and sorrow that we feel from the death of our love ones will cease and be replaced with joy, because the former things have passed away. With caring thoughts.

  2. Kim Dillard :

    To the family of Geraldine, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. It seems so unfair that the Methuselah tree lives for 4,849 years and humans only live, in comparison, a short period of years? (Psalm 90:10) God’s purpose is for humans to live forever! (Genesis 1:28; Psalm 37:29) Soon his promise of the resurrection and his purpose for humans to live forever will come true! (John 5:28)

  3. Toschia Toler :

    To Maria and The Family,May God keep is loving arms around you during your difficult time.My prayers and thought are with you.God Bless.
