Not sure what to say?

Dear Family and friends of Beckie as we knew her. We were very dear friends of Robin. After Robin passed we kept in touch with Beckie. She was such a wonderful woman. We loved her very much.

Dear Family and Friends of Gin:

Thank you so very much for coming today. It was so good to see how Gin had touched others' lives as much as ours. This thought captures her view of life. "If God doesn't want me to go now, I've got people who love me. But if He does want me to go now, I've got people on the other side who love me too. I'll be fine either way." (Thank you Pastor Tony for sharing these words!) Love, J. Sanchez

Dear family of Virginia,(Gin)
It is with sadness that we have learned of her passing. We enjoyed visiting with her when we came to Hildebran to visit family and friends. We talked with her on the phone while Christina, Ed's mother, was still alive. They're rejoicing together in Heaven, now!!
May God give you His peace and comfort as you grieve her passing.
Much love in Christ,
Jeanette and Ed Parham 703-323-5990 [email protected]
