    Our prayfully support sharing in your grief in the departure of your beloved Margaret to her husband, daughters, son, brother, sister, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, all extended families and friends. There is no sorrow like the earthly departure of a loved one. Grief can be so very hard; but all the special memories you hold within your hearts will come flooding back to soothe your spirits at this difficult time. So sorry that Margaret couldn’t be healed on this earth; but it is so comforting to know that she is now a very “Special Angel” without any suffering in her heavenly home. Our greatest comfort in sorrow is knowing that there’s a loving God watching over you and that throughout this time of need, He’ll stay close by your side enabling you with peace and strength to help ease your hurting hearts now and in the healing days ahead.
