Vinny and family, we are thinking of you and know that God is watching over you to help comfort you with your loss. Prayers and hugs to each of you.
Joe, Jamie and families.
May memories surround your heart. You are in my prayers. God Bless all of you.
Joe, Jamie and children,
I know she felt your love. You and your entire family is in my prayers.
Dearest Jamie & Joe, my heart hurts for your loss. I pray that in days to come you will see that your loss is truly heaven’s gain. I pray that the Holy Spirit would comfort you and bind up your broken hearts. Your precious Mom is now in the sacred Keep, the Stronghold, our true Home. She is now healed, whole, and made perfect by Jesus! She is now clothed in white as part of the spotless Bride of the Lamb. As time goes by, my prayer is lovod that you would see her AS SHE IS NOW and not as you saw her in her last days. I know the coming days will be hard. I will be praying and I know lots of others will, too. Lots of love and prayers, Laura Gorman
