To the children of Bobbie Jean Mackerl:
May God comfort and give you peace daily. During this difficult time, I will be praying for you all. I remember how Aunt BobbieJean help me with Nia when she was younger. She had loved for everyone rather you were Family or Friends. Auntie will most definitely be missed. I'm so glad she saw me in my cap and gown last year and most of all calling her to tell her I love you and praying for you just recently. Family, I will leave you with this:
Matthew 5: 4 says, Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comfort. God Bless and Peace to the Family.

To the Mackerl Family,

Death brings pain that time can only heal No words could ease what we truly feel; But with God, her joy is eternally sealed, and cherish her memories that death can't even steal. Lift up a smile for she is already in the paradise.
