To the family, you are in my thoughts today. I’m sure that many tears will be shed today for Aunt Vi. She touched so many lives along the way. Those of us who had the pleasure of being part of her family will always remember the warm, welcoming arms even after years of separation. With much love and a heavy heart, Karen

To The Melanko Family:

Please accept my sincere condolence for the loss of your love one. During times like these, hearts are filled with pain and sorrow. However, please find comfort in 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.”

You are in my prayers.
