Please accept my sincere condolence. May you find comfort through the Word of God. “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces…” Isa 25:8. This promise will be accomplished by means of God’s Kingdom or government with His son Jesus Christ ruling as king (Dan 2:44).

My favorite memory is when we were kids camping and Uncle Weston was shaving your legs and I was thinking how strange that was but also knew it was special at the same time. As I grew older this memory made my laugh and smile, and I shared this memory with you a couple of years ago and you laughed, loved your laugh. I will miss your homemade cards made with so much love. Rest In Peace Aunt Bea!

My thoughts and prayers are with all the family.
