THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY MAY GOD BLESS EVERYONE
Dear Carrie and family,
I never saw Teresa without a smile and every time we met, no matter how long it had been, it was like we saw each other every day. Always a good neighbor, she would lend a hand if at all possible. As she spends her first Christmas with Jesus, my prayer for the family is to feel the arms of God around you giving you peace and comfort throughout this sad time and in the days to come. Maybe it’s not stars but instead openings in Heaven where the love of those gone before us pours through and shines down on us to let us know they are happy.
My love and constant prayers,
