I know you miss your precious wife and the children their Mother. God?s words the Bible brings comfort and help ease the pain of the family doing this time of grief. They were a comfort for me when my Dear Mom passed in August 2011. Jesus says at John 5:28, 29: ?Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life?. We look forward to that happy reward. In the mean time the Bible promises that ?he himself will sustain you?.-Psalm 55:22. May your memories of your loved one bring a smile to your face, and may the scriptures from God?s word bring the family peace and hope.

I just learned of Lois' death and wanted to let the family know of my heartfelt sympathy. Lois and I were classmates all those growing up years in Hot Springs and have nothing but good memories of her. My cousin Leah in Missouri, worked with Lois and gave me her phone number so I was able to get in touch with her a couple of years. She will never be forgotten. Prayers to all.
