Dear loved ones, she was a Bible reader she read about resurrection hope, the Bible reports eight instance of humans - young,old, male, and female -who were brought back to life on earth. Some had been dead for a short time, but one had been in a tomb for days!- John 11: 44. God is eager to do it again. He has a longing to conquer that enemy to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and see them live on earth again. Job 14:14,15 (1 Corinthians 15:26 ; John 5:28,29; Pslam 37:29) Jessie

God has received a beautiful addition to his garden. The rarest flower one could find. A flower grown with much sacrifice and love. Lanita may you and
the family continue to blossom in the love and sacrifice that was given. Your dear Ann, is at rest in peace.

At the end of each life is a legacy of love and memories. Hold tight to those memories…. Lean on each other for support. And look to God’s Word, the Bible, for comfort and strength. 1 Peter 5:7 encourages; “Throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.”
