Memories Timeline


  1. 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

  2. Shirley was our Youth Director at Suburban Baptist Church, Granite City and was a dear friend to our mother. She has left us with many fond memories. God Bless you.

  3. I would like to express my condolences at this time to your family. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at times like this. A comforting thought is at Revelation 21:3,4, where it states "…And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry be anymore the former things have past away". This scripture gives us hope for the future! You can also find comfort in Acts 24:15 – Death does not end it all. May Jehovah bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Your neighbor,S.Rubio
