Aunt Pat was always there for me since the day I was born. I remember holidays, her homade eggnog, weekends and vacations together in ocean city. Hours and hours on the phone(she loved to talk) visits to Claymont with my parents to visit. She was a wise lady, always there in my life growing up providing love and support. I will miss her, as I do quiet Uncle George, and cousin Jim. Miss you all. Prayer for you Kel and your family, love Sharon

I'm so sorry for your loss, it's painful to lose someone you love. I would like to share with you and your family and friends an encouraging message from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 promises us that God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be any more. The former things have passed away. You could be in pain right now but very soon God is going to turn things around and we know that for sure because the Bible gives us that promise. And the Bible is God`s word. Please read those scriptures with your Bible. I hope this message gives you courage during this time of bereavement.
