I am truly sorry for your loss. May God give you and your entire family strength and bring you joy and peace that you deserve. The scriptures in Revelation 21:4 gives us encouragement. God promises death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. So we know that all these things that bring pain in our lives will be done away with in the future. Please read the scriptures in the Bible and they will give you strength and hope during this tough time.

Motherhood is a gift - a blessing, a burden, an honor, and a responsibility... Although distance prevented us from knowing her well, as I understand it, Sallye LaVerne D. Onuschak, was an incredible woman, earning many accolades and much admiration throughout her lifetime. However, the gift she shared with us, was the blessing we received when when her son Dave joined our family - a gift that we shall cherish forever. May the love of Jesus carry you and give you strength, through this time of loss and sorrow. With love and compassion: The Hubbard family; The Guill family; The Jacob Richardson family; The Joshua Richardson family & Paul Dykstra; all of Texas; and Wyll Dykstra of Georgia.
