Memories Timeline


  1. So very sorry for the tragic loss of your dear loved one. Life seems so unfair to lose someone so dear to you. The Bible provides true comfort for grieving family. Revelation 21:4; tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” May you find comfort in these words and your loving memories.

  2. I grew up next door to Henry, Ada, and Eleanor and spent many hours with her, coloring, walking to Northport, and visiting. I have many fond memories of her kind heart and her giggles. She truly was a gem. May she rest in peace.
