Not sure what to say?

Our Beloved Sister Nora is gone to be with the Lord. She will be greatly miss, but left us a good witness of how to be faithful and keep trusting in the Lord day after day inspite of our circumstances. It was a privilege knowing her for such a short time but we know our sweet renion is coming soon. Our prayers goes out to her families that God's grace gave them the strength they need today and hope for tomorrow.

Nora was one of the most humble and sweetest persons God ever put in our family. She was very forgiving and nurturing to everyone acquainted with her.

Acts 22:15 Nora will be greatly missed by her family. Our...

We are going to miss Nora so much. She was a member of our church for many years but more than that she was an awesome friend. We loved having Nora live behind us for a couple of years. It was during this time that we were able to become closer. Nora is where we are all striving to be and I'm sure she is in the Presence of God. We will miss her terribly.

From my family to yours. We are saddened by this news but at the same time we are rejoicing in the promise that God has given us who know Christ as Nora did. The pain and trials are no more and our precious Nora is spending eternity in the presence of God. And for us who have placed our trust in Jesus as well, our promise is that we shall one day see her again. It was an honor to have the opportunity to meet you folks and join in prayer with you as we did. My prayers for comfort and peace...

Our hearts are broken and we have been praying for Sister Nora's miracle. She has the greatest miracle ever. Our LORD took her home to dwell with him.

We are going to miss this sweet child of GOD more than words can express. We are comforted and rejoicing that she is free from the cares, pain, and worry of this world. Some of the shine is gone from this world but sweet memories of her echo in our thoughts and she will be forever in our hearts.

We will be praying for...
