Kevin and Family, I was so sorry to hear about your mom. She was such a beautiful woman. I can remember walking by her house and seeing her tending the yard and flowers. She always said hello. Know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Mr. and Mrs. Francis (Eric and Jen's parents)

I am so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful women. Death of a loved one is one of the hardest things we face in life. It brings out so many mixed emotions. This is when we need our Heavenly Father the most. Turn to him in pray. He is there for you.
Psalm 34:15, “He listen to our cry for help.” Pscalm 34:18, “He is closed to the brokenhearted. He saves all thoses who are crushed in spirit. 1 Peter 5:7, “ throw your anxieties on him.He is there ready to comfort and guide us through this difficult time period. He also leaves us with a hope in John 5:28-29, “the hour is coming when all thoses in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out.” Joyce will be able to live again under much better conditions. You may wish to visit the website for more information. I sincerely hope theses scriptures bring some comfort to the family.
