    We want you to know that you and your family are in our prayers…
    John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

    God bless

  5. Heather says:
    The world lost a very special woman. A woman whose smile and laugh would make all of us smile in return. Each day as I came to work and saw her name on my assignment, I would smile; knowing that my day would be a good one because she was there. Even though i only knew her for what felt to me as a short few weeks, I am so blessed for my time with her during the few weeks which to her probably felt like an eternity. I am overjoyed to have been able to meet her and laugh with her…she had so much spunk and sass in her. Spunk and sass that I know will be missed by many. She left us knowing that she was loved. And as hard as it was to let her go, she went with some of many she loved by her side. And that passing is a way of passing of many blessings in its own form. Many of those who have lost were unable to say goodbye. Some of those lost were alone. Sometimes it can be so hard to see even the smallest glimpses of light through the darkness. Stay strong Regina and family. I have been praying for you.
