Dear family. The death of a loved one can be hard to bear. Please take comfort in knowing that your Heavenly Father understands your pain as He too experienced the death of his only son, Jesus Christ. Job 14: 14, 15 shows that God yearns to bring your dear loved one back to life. For more information about this subject, please visit the website JW.ORG. Please accept my heartfelt condolence for your loss.

I can't believe you are gone, I can't believe that I wrote your obituary and helped plan your funeral. It is so hard to believe that I last saw you the night before you went to be with Jesus. This does not seem real, you were supposed to be here longer. You were not supposed to go yet. What are we supposed to do without you? How can we go on without you? You mean so much to all of us. My dearest Grammita, My heart is broken, my soul is sad, I am lost without you. I never wanted to go through this. I know you are home with Jesus and all of our loved ones who have gone before walking with the angels. I lost my angel here on Earth. Thank you so much for everything you did, thank you for raising me, thank you for teaching me, and thank you for being you. I will love you always. Donovan misses you so much, he loves you and wishes you were here. Say hello to everybody. Grammita, your work, pain, and suffering is over, rest now in the arms of the Lord, my precious Grammita until I see you again, God bless you and I love you.
