The end of a family generation. I will miss the visual memories you gave me over the years. I am sad that I have lost that connection but happy that you are home.

John 5: 28,29 says; All those in the grave will hear Jesus’s voice and come out. None of us have ever seen such a thing take place. It will surely be one of the grandest of the things ever seen. Seeing our loved ones again will produce in us a marvelous sensation of joy and happiness. At John 11:25 Jesus said to Martha, & I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith In me, even though he dies will come tol life&. May your family find the joy that many have found in the resurrection hope. (Acts 24;15)

I am so very sorry to hear that Gertrude has passed on. I was her next door neighbor from June 2001 until she moved to the Shrine. She was a wonderful lady and I think of her so often. We did a lot together and I enjoyed her company often.

I don’t know if you will get this so late, but I was thinking about your mom and was going to try and contact her. I was making cut out cookies that she used to make and I have her recipe. She was such a wonderful lady….one of my favorites growing up. The Jacobs kids loved your mom! So I just wanted to let you know I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I know she lived a good life!
