Sorry for your loss. As the days and weeksass,and as you return to your daily routines,may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Draw close to God and he will draw close to you.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

During this difficult time when you see no way out rely on God.
He is constant never has an end.
He is fearless and  will always be your friend.
He is merciful never expects to much.
He can bless whatever you touch
He will make you happy,  all he ask of you is to love him  John 4;8

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Pond's family. I was lucky to have her as my kindergarten teacher in the early 70's. I was able to visit with her at the Pizza Hut a couple of years ago. She sat at our table and blessed us with her prescence. Even after all these years, it is with great sadness to see of her passing. She was and is an insperation to me!! Heaven is truly going to be a better place with her in it.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Why would anyone remember a teacher from 43 years ago? Because they were kind, caring and left a lasting impression on me. Long before she was a legislator, Mrs. Pond had already made the world a better place. Jerry V., Kindergarten class of 1965

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. My first job after graduate school was working for the Allen County Commissioners. We were seeking state funding for the Maumee River Widening project. Your mom was so kind to me and help me understand all the twists and turns that a funding request can take before the budget actually passes. What a wonderful lady and a tremendous public servant. She will be missed.
