Past Comments


Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. There is a void that cannot be replaced. The life insurance we buy is really preparation for death. But the life insurance Jehovah God offers is the destroying of death itself and all the things we can think of that causes it. He will do this through His Kingdom that His Son Jesus Christ is King of. We can gain comfort now through the Bible. And in the very near future we will hold our love ones again. We all will live happy healthy lives forever in exquisite delight and in an abundance of peace here on earth.

Mary and Bill

I’ve never seen a woman who was more unfailingly elegant.

She was regal, beautiful, lady like and always glad to see you. What I’ll never forget is her absolute disgust with at the sight of the toilet in your yard. My oh my, those Racine friends must have seemed uncouth to her! She represents the end of the era of really classy ladies, and that’s the way we will remember her.

All our best, Mary and Bill
