would like to send my condolences to the Adams Family upon reading about your recent loss! I hope that this message of comfort and hope helps your family take refuge in prayer at Psalms 57: 1, and know that your loved one is alive in gods memory. At Luke 20:37,38 may the God of comfort, comfort you at this time. God has made the loving provision for a resurrection, so that you can see, Mrs Adams again and such hope Jesus told us about is found at John 5:28-29. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss!
Rose Mary, sorry to hear about your precious mother's passing..let God wrap His Loving Arms around you and your family that you may find comfort.

Sue and I worked together at Opelousas General Hospital from 1973-78. She was a great nurse, coworker and friend. Later I worked with her daughter-in-law Liddy at Doctors’ Hospital with same results. My prayers and condolences go out to Liddy, Ronnie and all family and friends. RIP Sue.
