    Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

    Prayers for the family. I was lucky enough to know this sweet lady. I met her years ago at Michael’s and used to talk to her at her work place never knowing that years later I would work for her Sister and Niece, “the two Maria’s” at The Mirror where I would truly get to know her and do her nails for several years. She will be greatly missed I’m sure.

    Dealing with the death of a loved one is so very hard to do. I hope you find comfort in God’s promise to restore our dead loved ones to life here on the earth, never having to say goodbye again. Through God’s Kingdom, Jesus will make this earth the problem-free paradise that his Father intended it to be. Until that time let your memories take you back and make you smile, let prayer bring you peace and comfort, and the support from your family and friends help you through this very difficult time.- Matthew 6:9-10; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29
