With sincerest sympathy and love we extend our heartfelt condolences. And please remember the promise that Jesus gave us all: I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he (she) has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. John 5:24-27

Difficult moments like this are often pressed upon us before we are ready. I am confident that the memory of Sarah (grandma) and the life she lived will continue in each of us in unique and personal ways. It is my deepest hope that some solace is found in the waiting arms of our Lord. Perhaps this image will give us strength to celebrate grandma with love and fond remembrance. I will not say goodbye but rather I hope to see you again, please rest now, for one day we will all be together again bathing in the warm embrace of God. May the Lord Bless You and receive you with love grandma. -David
