    I like to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. It was never God’s intent that death should rule over mankind. – Romans 5:12; 1Corinthians 15:26, 55; He will do away with it and He has provided hope-as stated at John 5:28, 29. During this most painful time please find comfort from the scriptures.

May your memories of her bring you peace and serenity during this difficult time. Following is a very nice thought that I would like to pass on to you all..
    “Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal and Love leaves a memory that no one can steal”. My deepest sympathy to you all. God Bless.

    Coleman family, I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I will always remember her grace, her gentle laughter, and how she always made everyone feel at home. Being a part of the Raymore 4-H club was a special part of my childhood and you four and your parents are a huge part of that. Prayers and blessings for all of you.
