    Dear John, Linda, Laurie, and Jeannine,
    We mourn with you in your mom’s passing. Aunt Gloria was always so cheerful and caring. Her faith in our Savior Jesus Christ was unwavering and well lived out. Although not having her near to you may cause pain and sadness, knowing she is in God’s glorious presence now and for all eternity can be such a comfort and hope for all of us. Isaiah 40:31, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not grow faint.”
    With God’s blessings and tender hearts,
    Bruce and Kathy
