    Cliff and Brenda Gail – We know that this will eventually happen, but we’re never quite ready for it. As a Christian, we know we will see them again, but I know how it hurts while we’re still here on earth – missing them and wanting to talk with them one more time. The Lord will soften the hurt though and He helps us recall all the good times we had with them. These are precious memories and a precious gift. I join in your sorrow and rejoice that she is in no more pain but is with our Lord.

    Tyke and Gail,

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Aunt Gladys was a very special person and was loved dearly. I think of you all often and hope that you can find strength in the memories of a woman who gave with all her heart and without question. She helped me during a very difficult time and I have always had a special place in my heart for her. Your Oklahoma family misses you both and sends love and prayers for comfort and strength. Perhaps your parents and mine are playing rook and enjoying each others company now. All my love, Melanie
