    NChas South CarolinaDear Hanson family,
    We don’t know each other but at this difficult time of grief and pain I do hope you’ll accept my deep regrets for your loss for death is our greatest enemy and always brings much grief and pain and that is why at this time I wanted to share what helped me when I lost my whole family to this enemy death. I found hope and comfort in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John11:11 that they’re just asleep and Jesus tells us at John5:28,29 that we’ll see our love ones again and we have ICor15:26 that tells us this enemy death will be done away with. These scriptures help me get through each day and I’m truly hoping they’ll help you in some way for this is my purpose in sharing them with you and please know I do share your grief and feel free to contact me at anytime at my address or email gloriamosley@hotmail,com
    Sincerely, Gloria

    So sad and sorry to hear about Sandy. So many memories of Sandi, Barb and I and our escapades on the farm….high jumping the fences, “boating” in anything that would sort of float in any water we could find, Jerry rescuing us!!! Sandy was always so happy and fun. Great times and many fond memories of your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Menomonee Falls WisconsinTo the family: So sorry to hear of the loss of Sandi, It was a shock because I didn’t know she was ill. But now she is in a better place. I remember all the fun times we had in Raritan School in the same grade and how we would play blocks at recess and she would never let me have the pink and blue ones. That is just one of many fun times. In time, the pain will ease but we all will never forget. Your cousin, Sherry Kay
