I am so very sorry. I have always thought the world of Wanda and Harold. I remember them being at Uncle Francis's and Aunt Betty's house for holidays. I am saddened to hear about Wanda, she was always so sweet. The family is in our prayers.

Harold, Kent, and family - Lifting you up in prayer, knowing and believing that God will sustain you and see you through this time. Kent, when I went to open your message, I saw the message about my mom that I had sent to you, then I opened yours, and it was the same...please know that my thoughts are with you all.

To family,
My sincere condolences .There is no greater pain than the death of a loved one. Sometimes it seems almost more than a person can bear. Jehovah God helps us with this in His word. He promises us that He will put a stop to all sickness and death will be no more (REV 21;3.4) Jehovah shows His love for us through the ransom sacrifice of His beloved son Jesus Christ. What a wonderful gift to be given ! Then the hope of seeing one's loved ones again on this earth transformed in a paradise as it was Jehovah's will when He created Adam & Eve .
