My condolences to the family at this time of loss. Losing the ones we love is one of the most devastating things we can experience. I have always found comfort in God's promises found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. In those verses are promises from God to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones and also to remove all causes of suffering, pain, sickness, and even death. May you too find comfort in these promises from God, who cannot lie. (Titus 1:2)

I remember when Fruiti said I could call her Rudy, and nobody was allowed to call her Rudy, or so I was told. We all went to Church concerts and at home laughed and had a blast. She was the sweetest lady I knew, and I'm going to miss her so much. I love you Fruiti! Praying for the family, and I love you guys.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of coming over to Rudy's house on Sunday afternoon when my dear Mother wanted to see her niece...even that all of her children might not remember me or my siblings, I remember each of them coming over to our house occasionally in Boyce (even when they were tiny babies!) for a visit! I am so sorry for your loss! I am even more sorry that we have grown so far apart as family! We sincerely hope you will be blessed by God all throughout this time with comfort and peace that only He can provide you! You've lost both parents this year. Please know we are thinking and praying for you all!
