    Chris and Marcia, we are so very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Rest assure, you are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. She truly was a talented lady and could absolutely do anything with her artistic talent. She was a great neighbor and friend here in Newark, Delaware and I am certain you will miss her a great deal. She spoke of her grandchildren in glowing terms and valued her time with them. We still have some Christmas tree ornaments that she made for us and we hang them on our tree each year in December.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss and pain, and I wanted to share the biblical hope of a resurrection in John 5: 28,29 at a time when there are no more sickness or death pains here on earth according to Revelation 21: 3 ., 4. May the god of consolation give you comfort through the Scriptures in this moment of mourning.
