Condolence From: Brenda (Hand) Roberts
Condolence: Dale, Jeff and family - first of all, I'm so sorry. But at the same time, I'm so glad you had Betty for all the years you did - she was such an inspiration and had such grace to let everyone she cared about know she cared for all the years she could. If only we all would follow her awesome example. Betty will always have a very special place in my heart, as do you. God bless you - I pray that He will hold you all in His loving hands, comfort you, give you peace, and a smile when you think of Betty, not tears, because she loves you most of all. Sending you lots of love and hugs, too!

Condolence From: LJ
Condolence: The years of our life are fleeting. Without intervention, we would all say goodbye to those we love, or they would say goodbye to us. Wonderfully, God has promised to intervene. “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3, 4) God will destroy death and remove the pain it has caused by restoring those who have died back to life. Yes, it will be like he wiped the tears from our eyes, when we are reunited with those we love. I am very sorry for your loss.
