Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus' kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.

This tree is being planted for my beloved, Auntie Doris, who left this earthy world 4-8-2019. I will forever cherish the wonderful memories, including Friday night arrivals in Palm Beach with her yelling "Auntie Doris is in the house" as we watched Creature Feature. I know she was greeted in eternity by her parents, her husband Joe (my Uncle), brother Frank, brother Bernie (my Dad) and a host of other family and friends. "The Lord is my refuge, my fortress"! I'll see you on the other side....
