Dear Dianne, Rick, Pam and Ardie,
Wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers. All of the Ryan girls loved your mother. She was such a kind and gentle woman and living next to you in Lovilia all those years was so much fun. I remember playing in the apple orchard - riding to school with you. So many fond memories... God Bless you all. Blessings, Sharon

I would like to express my sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one, Bonnie. The death of a loved one is one of the most painful events that can happen. Our loving Heavenly Father understands how you feel because death was not a part of his original purpose for mankind (Genesis 1:28). However, he provides comfort to help soothe the feelings of sadness and grief. Psalm 147:3 says; "He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." The wonderful promise for the future at Revelation 21:4 is very comforting. It says; "He (God) 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."
