Memories Timeline


  1. She was one of the sweetest women I ever knew. Her smile would light up a room and melt your heart. She will be sadly missed.

  2. May these words bring you comfort and hope as they did for our family during our loss. Found at Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it." Your neighbor and friend, Maddy Hernandez
