I am so sorry for the loss of your dear love one. May the family find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of an earthly resurrection. (Acts 24:15) And the promise of a new paradise on earth where pain and death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one as found at Revelation 21:3,4. May God (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this grievous time.

Patricia Gregory and I were co-workers and friends. She always talked about her uncle George and she is a fantastic nurse who gave of her best to her uncle. I sending thoughts and prayers to her and her family during this difficult time. I just want to leave this thought with the family, God saw Uncle George was getting tired and a cure was not to be, So He gently closed his weary eyes and said softly, " come to me"! He didn't deserve to suffer, so God gave him rest. God's garden must be beautiful, because He only takes the best. Love Ya, Trisha, God bless you and your family.
