    Dear Family and Friends,

    I’m sorry for your loss. I just wanted to leave you with an encouraging scripture that has helped me deal with the loss of a loved one. It is found in the Bible Book of Acts 24:15 and it reads, “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”

    Daphne,
    You and Cliff are in our thoughts each day and have been for the last few weeks. We know too well your exhaustion and loss. Although we never met your mom, we certainly know her daughter so we know she must have been quite the character, always concerned about others and very careful of the details 🙂 . Sweet memories and rest will comfort you. Take care of yourself as you mourn for your mom. Don’t hesitate to call if you need anything.
    Sincerely,
    Leslie and Cory

    Daphne, Don, Jean, Sandra, Carolyn, and all, I remember “Emma Elizabeth” so fondly. She was always one of the sweetest, kindest people I knew and always had a smile that
    would light up the room. We attended the same church (Fayetteville ARP) in our youth
    and my memories of her are of a beautiful
    lady that I always looked up to. My love and
    sympathy to all. God bless.
