    Cindy & family-
    I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Knowing that she is at home with Jesus and is safe, I believe, is the best source of comfort. I will pray for you as you continue through these incredibly difficult days that seem to never end. Hold fast to Jesus and His promises!

    Jesus said to one of the criminals beside him, “Truly, I say to you, TODAY you will be with me in Paradise.”
