  • I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Having a loved one pass away is one of the hardest things we have to deal with in life. Please be assured that God does care and will remember your loved one. In times like these I find comfort from God’s word the Bible. Revelation 21:4 is particularly soothing where God says “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please remember and cherish the memories of your dear loved one and look forward to the time when death will be a thing of the past- just as God has promised.

  • My condolences to you all, Maureen, Mimi, Mario, Julian and James and to my cousin Delores for the loss of June. Aunt June, as I called her, was as you may or may not know, my Godmother. Her life was one of many difficulties, hardships and later …pain. I close my eyes and see her adoring smile always when she approached me…happy and inviting to give a hug and kiss and then to hear her sweet voice in my ears. I loved her so very much and really was never a very good cousin to her….I now feel that I failed at giving her more that she may have needed…but I know she knew I loved her. She will always be in my heart and soul as a beautiful example of a woman, an Aunt, a Godmother. You all were so blessed to have her as a Mother, or a sister. As you move forward with your lives, go with the knowledge that you were in the company of an Angel….my Aunt June. Much love.
