Our deepest sympathy to the family. May Jehovah the God of all comfort, comfort the family during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4) Our prayers are with you all. May you find comfort knowing that the day will come when we can see our Loved ones again when Jesus will resurrect them as is promised at John 5:28,29. May you all have peace. We love you.

Sylvia, Shelby, Gary, Artie, Judy and Family,

I am so sorry to find it necessary to write a sympathy note regarding our Aunt Neet. I have known Aunt Neet all my life and lived in very close proximity to the family during my growing-up period. I have always found Neet to be a very gentle soul, caring and always concerned about the goings on in her family. She was sweet and quiet and always pleasant. I loved her dearly. I visited with her about a year ago and we sat, discussed family and old times. A wonderful visit, and now, an even more wonderful memory of my sweet Aunt Neet.

Family, Please rest assured knowing your Mother is with her Lord and Savior, also her (our) beloved Jacqueline. You will, as always, remain in our thoughts and prayers.

Be Blessed,
Cousins Butch and Thom
