    I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Juanita. I remember her as a good neighbor and a quiet woman who could brighten the room with her radiant smile. May she sleep with the angels.

  2. We wanted to share our condolences with the family. It’s never easy saying goodbye to a love, the pain of loss can be unbearable. Our creator promises that one day this pain will be a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3&4. We hope you find comfort in these promises.
