  1. God does work in mysterious ways. After a long absence from my father’s family I feel so blessed at having reconnected. During this short time I could see what a lovely and gracious lady my Aunt Lois was. Ray and I send our heartfelt condolences to the family. John & Sharon, Bruce and Heather I know that all of you did your very best to take care of Aunt Lois, especially in this past year. I am sorry for your loss and no doubt very sad hearts. We know that she is in a better place, no longer trapped and confused by her illness, but in God’s care and with her loved ones that have passed before her.

    Our Prayers Are With You,
    Ray & Teresa Welborn

  2. I’m deeply sorry forthe loss of your loved one. My heart goes out to you. When going through the loss of my father, a scripture that brought me comfort is Isaiah 41:10. There God implores us to not be anxious because he is with us and lovingly assures us ” I will really hold on to you with my right hand.” May the God of all comfort be with you at this difficult time. ( 2 Cor. 1:3,4 )
