I just wanted to express my deepest sorrow over your loss. Please draw comfort from our heavenly father’s promise to, in the very near future, make “death no more” and also bring back our dear loved ones that have already "fallen asleep" (2Cor 1:3,4 Rev 21:3,4 & John 5:28,29). Again my condolences
I just want to say that I am sorry for your loss, to all of her friends. My Nanna was one of the most remarkable, strong, and beautiful women that I have ever known. I am fortunate to have called her my family and even though I think about her everyday and how much it hurts that she is gone, I still have so many wonderful memories of her smile and singing! I am sorry for those who were close to her, because I know what you have lost and are missing! She will always be watching us from the heavens and one day we will all get to see her again. I miss you so much Nanna!
Everett, so sorry to hear about Jo Ann. I haven't seen y'all in years and did not realize you were back in
Winston-Salem. We had some good times way back "in the day".
God bless you and your family. (Sorry I can't attend her service as I have an appointment at 9AM to get a Mohs procedure behing my right ear.)
