Condolence From: Charlene
Condolence: Dear Bethany, Stephanie, Ralph and Families,
Sending along my sincere condolences on
the loss of your dear mom and partner. I will most
definitely miss seeing her on my walk along Union Street
as I head to or back from my Main Street office. Actually, come
to think of it, I have been missing seeing her for
some months now. I always enjoyed seeing her calm and
confident smile and exchanging an occasional
hello or wave as I passed by the house. Since that's about
the only context I actually know her from I'll probably always
think of her as the peaceful tender of the
fern and hasta garden. The sweet, deep green cultivating, shade
maximizing "Garden Lady" :-)
Hugs and many good thoughts are winging your way.

We hope that many fond memories will lift you during your sad times and comforting words will give you the strength to cope with your thoughts in the days, months, and years to come. During our recent loss, we took to heart encouraging information found at jw .org. There you’ll find answers as to why we lose our dear loved ones and the hope of our reunion soon to come, something we can all look forward too.
