Hello, sorry for your loss. Death is a terrible sting to the heart. It seems unfair when we loose a loved one. Please consider 2Corinthians 1:3,4. It’s a nice reminder that God really cares for us and we do not have to handle this alone. Jesus felt the same way and showed it by healing those who were sick and lame. Even raised the dead. That proves we are precious in God’s eyes. Words do bring comfort but the Bible heals our heart. Again I’m sorry for your loss

Fran was everyone's Nana. She enjoyed the loving and dedicated care of her daughter, Linda. No one was more committed than Linda, who spent more than 100 days sleeping on hospital and recovery center floors refusing to leave her mother's side. The love between them was palpable, and it is fitting that Fran passed with Linda at her side. Fran will be missed by many...
