Sincere condolences to the family and Gail Ryals in the going home of Mrs.LaFavor. I pray the Lord will get your family through this difficult time with the knowledge that your family member now rests with the Lord in His eternal kingdom. May God bless each of you with her memory.
Sure hated to hear that Aunt Janet passed away but so glad she is not suffering anymore. She was such a sweet person and when I was growing up, I looked at her as my second mother (since she babysat me everyday while mom worked). Other than my mother’s cooking then I would definitely say Aunt Janet was next in line as a great cook.
I hate that I couldn’t be there today in person for her services but I have had the flu very bad and am just getting over it. I do have all of the family in my thoughts and prayers. I know Aunt Janet will truly be missed. But she’s in heaven with Uncle Frank now and rejoicing and with no more pain either. Sincere condolences.
