When we came to Ha'Penny she was always a shining star! Such a friendly and welcoming person to new members. We used to have giggles together chatting about a few of our St. Croix characters. She was a lovely, warm and caring person. The angels are welcoming one of their own. Colette

I’m very sorry for your loss. Grief can be so hard especially the first year. I have found the promise Christ gave us at John 5:28,29 which says in part “do not marvel at this there is going to be a resurrection” comforting. Resurrection means a standing back up. A restoration of life again. Revelation 21:4 helps us discern it is going to take place here on earth. A new earth one with true peace and security. (Psalms 37:10,11,29). Hold on to these heartwarming passages. May they sustain you and may Jehovah comfort you. With my deepest sympathy.
