    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family on the loss of your loved one. Aunt Candy was always so full of life and so very friendly, and always smiling. Love visiting with her over the years. She was taken to soon from us and I’m sure she will be missed dearly. She is in a better place now, without suffering and pain. RIP Aunt Candy. We love you.

    My love, thought and prayers for the family. Aunt Candy was beautiful, caring, and giving. She was an angel here on earth who is now an angel in heaven. May God comfort you all in this difficult, sad time.

    I am sincerely sorry for the loss within your family. This a hard time because God is life and gives us life and death is an enemy to all. A biblical scripture that has helped my family tremendously when a family member has passed is John 5:28, 29 where it says there will be a ‘resurrection of life’. If you would like to talk more about this promise I am available at any time needed or if you just need to talk.
