Our thoughts and prayer are with you at this time. We have fond memories of Mrs Silver, a fine lady, and family. A former school mate of Wayne and Freemans were neighbors. Peggy and Jim Freeman

My thought and prayers are with you; especially to you Eloise and Eddie.
I know it is hard to give our parents up regardless of how long we have
been fortunate enough to have them. Sorry I cannot be with you, I
have had knee surgery, but am home now. My love to all of you. Elaine

Silvers famiy - We are sorry to hear of Mrs. Silvers passing. We know and love all of you. We remember so many good times at Landis when we were all growing up. We were all in the same category, several kids and not a lot of earthly goods, but we made it. May God give you comfort and peace in the difficult days ahead. We have both lost our moms and there is nothing that can compare with it. We have to go out of town Monday morning and we will not be able to be there to support you, but you will be in our prayers.

I delivered Meals on Wheels to Gladys on Fridays. She was a source of inspiration to me. Her smile was something that just started my day right. The love that her caregivers extended to her was testament to her kind and gentle spirit. I am privileged to have been a small part of her life for a time. Jean Ryan, Meals on Wheels Volunteer

Dear Wayne, Kevin & Family: I am just now reading of your loss. My sincerest condolences to all. You are each in my thoughts & prayers.

I''m sorry for your loss.
Death is such a hateful and ugly event that it''s called an enemy in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26.
But Jesus gave us a hope in the Bible at John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life."
So, we will be able to see our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. Then we will never have to lose them again.
Why can we say that?
Because God has promised us this in the Bible at such scriptures as Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 26:19, and Revelation 21:3-5.
Isn''t this good news?
Please read these scriptures in your own Bible.
Sincerely, Rosemarie
