Jule, Susie, Pam and all..

Sorry I can’t be there with you, but my thoughts and prayers will certainly be there. Aunt Marg was good to us when we needed her; a kinder soul I’ve never met. She was as close to my own as family could be. If I can do anything, call me. Miss you all.

Julie, Rose Ella & Pam,

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Margaret “Margo”. Her sincere and loving ways always brought a smile to those who knew and loved her. I’m very lucky to have such a very dear friend and a beautiful lady touch my life. I have many wonderful memories that I will cherish always. Margo had a heart of gold and I’m sure God has a special place for her. All my love, Carmella

To The Burkhart Family:

I am truly sorry for the loss of your dear love one. Words cannot express the pain and sorrow that you feel. But, please keep in mind God’s promise found in the Bible at Revelation chapter 21, verse 4. It reads: “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.The former things have passed away.”

May God comfort you during these difficult times.
