I am sorry to hear that grandma passed, but now she is with grandpa and enjoying herself without pain. Grandma was the kindest, most sweetest person that anyone would ever have the pleasure of meeting. We love you grandma, rest in piece.

Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. May the blessings of love be upon you, May its peace abide with you, May its essence illuminate your heart, Now and forever more....

So very sorry to hear of Aunt Mary's passing. When I think back to the Bradford days, I always remember her energy, vitality, and full zest for living. A great spirit then, and --- certainly ---now, as well.

So sorry for her passing, but I am really proud of her living to be 100 years old. That is a goal of mine and I am proud of her reaching that age. The times and eras she lived through were historic.

Death leaves a heartache no on can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal. God's blessing as he takes you in his arms.
