Bobby & I loved Alice. She was especially fond of Bobby! I am battling cancer so try not to go to funerals of those I am emotionally close to.
Not healthy for me. Bobby has lost sight but will remember her quick wit and their joking! Our prayers are with all. Paradise will be sweeter.
God bless all

The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God’s Word for comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) The Bible helps us to understand how God and Jesus feel about death. You see, God promises that the dead will live again. (Isaiah 26:19) They will be brought back to life. That is the hope of the resurrection (Acts 24:15). I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word seek to comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl
Sending my deepest sympathy to all this wonderful family. So very sorry for your loss.
