This little lady was a delight to have known for the short time she was on service with us at At home care Hospice. Fisety and fun. Full of life and spunk that when I walked in the house there she would cheer me up. Great lady.
Rest now in the arms of God.

The death of a loved one is the most devastating experience a family can face. At times, the pain of the loss will seem unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief. Questions will come up about why do we suffer and die? Please go to to get satisfying answers to these and other questions about life. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Williams Family

My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. May you find a measure of comfort in God's promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where we look forward to a time when there will be no more pain and death any more.
