    Dear Susan, Al, Greg & Family,
    Though I never had the honor of meeting your beloved Mother, I felt the love you had for her in the stories you told and the care you provided for her, in your home, over the last 10 years.
    She had to be an amazing woman for she raised you to be a wonderful, loving, and thoughtful person.
    May you find comfort that your Mother had a long and satisfying life and died surrounded by your family being so close to her. May God Bless her journey to Heaven.
    Our Hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with you as you say your final goodbyes to the Best Mom you ever had!
    The next couple weeks will be even more difficult as your son, Andy’s, death 8 years ago is nearing.
    We trust Andy and your Dad met her at Heaven’s gates and are together again.
    Love, Tim and Debby Hesse

    My heartfelt condolences to the family at this most difficult time. May all find comfort by reflecting on Jesus’ promise of a resurrection for those asleep in death. (John |, 29) The Bible-based hope of a resurrection can be the greatest comfort while grieving the loss of a loved one.
