Aunt Marion will be remembered for her thoughtful and pleasant ways! She enjoyed watching the birds each day and the wonderful phone calls! Can you still hear her say, “ I love you “? We were Honored for the unplanned, opportunity to care for her.
May God’s Word comfort your hearts and give you His peace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!
John 11:25,26,27. “ Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believeth thou this? She saith unto Him, Yea, Lord: I BELIEVE that thou art the Christ, the Son of God,”
All our love and prayers; Jim, Ellen Whitmore and Families

A mom is the first person to love us. She is our first friend. Our best friend for life. The love you feel for your mother runs deeper than any other love until you become a mom. Only then do you truly understand her love. A lifetime of memories. Her death leaves an emptiness you will never get over. But in time you can and will learn to live with such a great loss. I am so sorry for your grief. May the almighty Lord bring swift healing to your soul.
