I am very sorry for your loss . Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience . Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible . Jesus tells us at John 5 : 28 , 29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out . What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day . Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask Jehovah God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time . For more information please visit jw.org .

Dear Gonzales Family (cousins),
I want you t know how very sorry I am that I will not be there to honor your mother at her wake.
Nancy & I are in Jackson, Wyoming visiting Cassie and therefore will be unable to attend. We will however have you in our thoughts and prayers. I have a picture of your mother and father in my home and I think of them often.
I valued the time that I spent with your parents and I was proud to be their nephew. Aunt Sue was a pleasure to be around and always had that inviting smile on her face. She was soft spoken and very engaging as she asked you what was going on in your life. I truly enjoyed sharing travel stories with your mother and the shared excitement that it gave to both of us. Aunt Sue will truly be missed! I wish you the very best during these difficult times and know that I will treasure my memories of your parents.
Cousin John & Nancy
Cindy,Jamie and Family; Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother and the best friend that you will ever have, she was a sweet, kind and gentle lady. I am sorry not to pay my respects in person but I no longer drive. Love and prayers to all of you, and know that she will always be by your side! Love, Annette
Sue will be deeply missed by our family. Her, Ed, and the family have been amazing next door neighbors. I do not believe we could have hand picked better neighbors, because I believe God intended for her and her family to better my families life, and for over 30 years they did. It was our privilege to share her world. God has blessed all of us with being a part of her life! Our deepest sympathies to her family and all of our love to you!
My thoughts and prays are with you and your family.
Mom and I are so very sorry for you loss. We pray for all the family, God gives you peace and comfort during this difficult time.
