Aunt Louise, the most important thing you have taught me was to face life with a smile. In this most difficult time, it has helped me to remember your laughter, your smile, the good times we had together, and how ornery you could be sometimes. I will always hold you close in my heart. I love you, Aunt Louise, and I will miss you dearly till we meet again.

I admired and adored my Aunt Louise so dearly,I cut my hair myself at the age of 7 to look like her. Needless to say I went to school for the first time in a “butch” hair cut. Which in the 60’s was not cool! Her laughter is etched in my heart and soul forever. By the Grace of God with her I found laughter in sadness,peace in turmoil,strengh in wary times. I could call on her, without words being spoken she would come. She is taking a peice of my heart with her on her journey;yet leaving me with wisdom and memories of a life time. Words can not say how blessed I am for having her in my life nor can they say how deeply I will miss her.

I wish I had a magic word to wipe away your tears! I do not know any magic words, but I do know a God who can help heal you and I would like to share Him with you today. Remember, the door of death is the only door that leads to the Father’s house. He will be waiting there with open arms to greet and welcome Aunt Louise.

She brought a lot of love and joy to all those who knew her. May God’s love and grace bring the family comfort at this difficult time of her passing.

To The Miller Family:

I wish to express my heartfelt condolence for the loss of your dear love one. During times like these, hearts are filled with pain and sorrow. But, please find comfort in God’s promise found in the Bible at John chapter 5, verses 28&29. It reads: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memeorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.”

May God comfort you during these difficult times.
