Mitch & Lisa,

I am so sorry about your Mother’s death. May God give you peace, and comfort and wrap His arms of Love around each of you.

May your strength prevail to help you through this difficult time.
Remember too, that Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Death takes the body.
God takes the soul.
Our mind holds the memories.
Our heart keeps the love.
Our faith lets us know we will meet again.
