Dear Cousin Conrad,
My heartfelt sympathy to all of you as we celebrate the life and "home-going" of your Mother & my Aunt Ila, whom I loved and will miss.

Aunt Ila was a unique individual, who always stood firm in her faith, and wanted everyone to embrace the power of the Christian experience that changed her life so dramatically.

May the peace of our Loving, Heavenly Father bring you peace and comfort in your time of loss and grief.

Mere words can not begin to express the emotions of losing a Mother (I still miss mine every day), but we can rejoice in knowing that God has made provision for us to see our Loved Ones again if we live for Him.

You, her grandchildren, and extended family will be in my thoughts and prayers in your time of bereavement.

Love, Your Cousin,
Linda Rorrer-Wilson
