Posted by: Colleen Curran-Bromwell So sorry. Our love to you and your beautiful family!! 12/04/2017 Posted by: Annie Wingfield Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please find comfort in knowing that soon all those in God's memory will hear Jesus' voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Until that blessed day, may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, grant you peace while many fond memories warm your hearts. 11/29/2017 Posted by: Sally Montgomery I was so very sad to learn of Helen's death when I went to visit her last Sunday. As a Pets on Wheels of Delmarva volunteer, I had visited with her at Bayleigh Chase almost weekly for the last 6 years. We had been unable to visit for about three weeks, and I looked forward to seeing her again. It was always a great joy for me on the days that she said she "didn't feel up to a visit" that I would tell her we wouldn't stay, but that Anya really wanted to see her. So, she would agree. We'd sit quietly, listening to music, as she fed Anya treats. And there were always smiles and laughter by the time we left. She spoke lovingly of her family and always shared the menu details when Duane took her out for a special dinner; though I protested that she should NOT order prime rib when going out for Thanksgiving! I also saw her frequently at Christ Church Easton when she was able to attend. I know she had visits from friends and clergy from the church also. Her favorite Christmas carol was "Mary Did You Know." I will think of her each time I hear it. We will truly miss her. 11/12/2017 Posted by: Patricia West-Blankley Dear Duane and Family So sorry to learn Helen Jane has died. 11/11/2017 Posted by: George & Christine Ragusa My dear wife and I would like to extend our condolences for the loss of your loved one. All of us have experienced the pain of death in some way sad to say. And, so, at difficult times like this we are confronted with the stark reality of how precious and fragile life can surely be (James 4:14). So, my wife and I send this condolence to you with the hope that we can in some small way comfort you as it has comforted us with what the Bible reveals to us about GOOD NEWS from Almighty God. Please be assured that we are in no way trying to impose our faith on you; but we sincerely just want to extend comfort to you during your grief (Proverbs 17:17). As recorded in the Bible, God's only-begotten son, Jesus promises that one day he is personally going to bring back to life all those who have died, just as he did when he was on earth as a man (John 5:28,29; 11:43, 44). Just as death is an enemy to us, it is also an enemy to God (1 Corinthians 15:26). For that reason as well as others, He promises to remove FOREVER all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and DEATH that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10, 11, 29). What a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality and a sure hope we can rely on because it is absolutely impossible for God to lie (Titus 1:2; Isaiah 55:10, 11). It is our hope that you NOT take our word for what has been written in this condolence; but that you please take a moment to read and meditate on all these referenced scriptures in your own Bible (1 Timothy 4:15, 16). My wife and I are confident you will be encouraged and comforted by the marvelous hope God has in store for us (Psalm 1:1-3; John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are sincerely with all of you. 11/11/2017 Posted by: Les Smolin Sorry to hear of Helen's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Duane and the Marshall family. May you all take comfort in knowing she is at peace and her memory will live on in the hearts and minds of all those whose lives she touched. 11/08/2017 Posted by: Steve Webster So sorry for your loss. 11/08/2017 Posted by: Kelly Lynn and Tim Hunt We are so very sorry for your loss and will keep your family in our prayers. May the many wonderful memories you share serve to comfort you during this difficult time. 11/08/2017 Posted by: Amy Bromwell We are so sorry to learn of Mrs Marshall's passing. Being Christians we can however rejoice that she is with the Lord and free of all pain. You will see her again in Heaven and that alone must give you comfort. In Christ, Amy and Reggie 11/08/2017 Posted by: Mike & Cheryl Stephens Adams 11/07/2017 Posted by: Joan Frazier Deepest sympathy to Helen Janes' family. 11/06/2017 Posted by: Cambridge High School Class of 1957 Our love and sympathy to Helen Jane's family. 11/06/2017
