    Dear Alex, Valerie and Gabriel,
    We hope that the good times you spent together with your mother will strengthen you during your time of sorrow. Love and prayers, Uncle Calvin and Aunt Seraphine

  3. Thank you Aunt Shelia Its been hard but she’s in a better place with my grandparents and God. He takes his angels first. I know you know the pain daddy is feeling but we appreciate the love and support.

  4. My deepest condolences to the family. May God’s future promises at John 5:28,29 of an earthly resurrection and Revelation 21:3,4 of no more suffering or death bring you comfort. Until that time comes, God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)
