Samuel and David, I have such precious childhood memories of your mom. Carolyn was such an incredible person, no one can ever replace her. Your mother was one of my closest friends, and she spoke of you often. I know she loved you so much and the twins. She was like a sister to me of which I never had. We were classmates all down through the years from kindergarten, to when we graduated from Austin High school class of ‘59. I’m sending you and your family prayers and condolences.

To the family of our beloved sister Truesdale

“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

In pray for the family during this time,

Love, Anthony & Paula
