To Fay's Family: Please accept my deepest sympathy. The death of a loved one is one of life's most difficult experiences. Fay's death could have raised some of life's biggest questions, such as "Why Do We Grow Old and Die?" Thanks to the Restorer of Life, our Creator, that He has made provision through the death of His son that our loved ones can live again. (John 11:25). Fay was God-fearing. She no doubt often meditated on the scriptures. One such scripture is fund at Isaiah 25:7-8, where death is likened to a shroud that covers us all. Thanks to God who promises to remove that shroud by means of the resurrection and to eventually swallow up death forever. At which time we will all experience what Revelation 21:3-4 says that there will be no more sorrow, or pain even death will be no more. I hope you will find comfort from these Bible verses and over time the memories of Fay will restore your happiness

My thoughts and prayers are with the Dennis family. You can rest and believe that GOD has her back at her heavenly home and she is pain free. If you want to talk to her just say her name and you'll know she'll be there because you still have her locked in your heart and she never leaves there.
