    Debbie and Denise, Those we love SHINE in memories, which are never lost and in our hearts, forever. You’re in my thoughts as you grieve this loss and I pray you find comfort in fond memories.
    “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelations 21:4 KJV
