Condolence From: Ellie
Condolence: I would like to offer my condolences to the family. Mere words cannot express the grief that comes from losing a dear loved one to death. What can give us a measure of comfort is the Bibles promises of the day when sickness and death will be no more. Such words can hopefully ease the pain you all are experiencing at this time of sorrow. May the God of ALL comfort keep you enduring now and in the days to come. And may happy memories warm your hearts. - Revelation 21:3-5; 2 Corinthians 1:2-4

Condolence From: Steve & Mary Opheim
Condolence: Your mom was a part of our lives. She was engaged to my husband's father. We all thought the world of her. I was just thinking about at Christmas taking out a snow globe and pillow she gave us one year and good times at the kitchen table. Even the talks we had. She will be greatly missed. Sending comfort to the family on a loss of a lovely lady. God bless you!!!
