I'm so sorry for your loss. We know that soon all death will come to an end. (Revelation 21:4) Jehovah God knows the pain you are going through and soon he will do something about it. Not only will he end death but also wipe out every tear from our eyes and remove the pain.

Sharon was my classmate from the class on 1970. I want to honor her. I was fascinated by reading the obituary and was grateful to my nephew, Dan Haskenhoff for sending it to me. Each life is so special and I want to thank God for Sharon's life and what she meant to us. I am thankful to have know her.
