Claudia Chadwick Shelia, Shirley and the rest of the family, my deepest sympathy to you all. I know it's hard now, but time and the grace of GOD, will see you through. Aunt Cora is at peace and in time, you will see her and other loved ones again. Remember and treasure the good times you shared and take some consolation in those precious memories. Take things one day at a time, eventually, the pain lessens, but your memories and love never will. I'm here if you need me, just a phone call away! Much Love, your cousin Ann

Claudia Chadwick Sheila, Shirley, Ramu and all the grands, you all have my deepest sympathy. I know this is a very difficult time, but know the grace and mercy of GOD will see you through. Aunt Cora lived a long, full life and was blessed to see all her children and grandchildren grow up. But most importantly, she knew and loved the Lord! So take comfort in the fact that she's now at peace. One day, if we're saved, we'll see her, as well as, our other loved ones again, and we'll praise our Lord & Savior together! Remember, GOD doesn't put anymore on us than we can bear! He'll see you through this. Much Love, your cousin, Ann

Mrs. Jordan To The Family, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I also want to share the comfort of John 5:28,29 where we are promised that those who have fallen asleep in death have the hope of receiving a "resurrection" back to life. Life on an earth restored to a beautiful paradise. Psalms 37:11 says, "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." While we await that wonderful time please find comfort in these promises.
