Ronnie Moxey Joan and all the family. I admired you mom and grandmother for many years. Her sewing and all the things she did for many people as well as just being someone always able to talk to and laugh with. I was very close to Benny and her as everyone knows and always thought of them as part of my family. To everyone, I'm so sorry for your loss and she is resting in heaven in peace. I am sending many thoughts and prayers to all. Love, Ronnie 11/13/2012 Marian At this time you may be consumed with pain and anger, rightfully so, Just remember that God is near to You to give you comfort to lighten the load, He has provided a hope for all who died that there will be a ressurrection of all those in the memorial tombs they will hear his voice and come out John 5:28,29. (This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God. John 17:3) 10/20/2012 Noreen McQuaide How sad to hear of the loss of your mother.
