We cannot know the pain you feel. We cannot share the memories of your loss. But we can, and do offer our most warm and heartfelt condolences and inspirational words of encouragement. It has been said, that good things come to those who wait but the best things come to those who pray. God has a perfect timing. Never early. Never late. It takes a little patience, it takes a lot of faith. God did not not bring you this far to leave you. You keep holding on, stay in faith and watch Him work it out. Everyday God thinks of you. Every hour God looks after you. Every minute God cares for you. Because every second he loves you and so do we. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Don't look back. Step forward. Take a deep breath. Smile, and start living anew. May God be with you FOREVER on your journey..........along with your friends FOR LIFE.......(The Jackson's).....Chuck, Rosie and LaDonna. ____Sierra Vista, Arizona
