    My deepest condolences I’m so very sorry

  2. Gwyn Scheidt condolence:

    Patti and family,
    So very sad to hear your mother has passed into Paradise. Sad for all still here…. but not for Betty !! Jesus was there to give strength to her feeble hand as He reached out to grasp it. Her trembling lips and soft voice gained immediate tone and volume as she began to praise Him with a hymn of old. Her weak legs became strong as she danced with joy at the wonder of His glorious presence, and upon realizing that sweet Annie was jumping and barking excitedly at her feet.
    Her recent eyes, that had grown dim – brightened and revealed friends and family members joyously waiting to welcome her Home.

    Praise God for an Eternal life ~ first experienced in a temporary Glorious Paradise, and sealed with the inheritance of the New Jerusalem!
