To our dear neighbour Margaret, Margie, as we fondly referred her to. You have been our neighbour and friend for lot of years. Ross (Buzz) well miss the times he spent playing cards with you. Then bragging how he beat you. Going over to take your garbage out and watching for your outside light to come on, at night. We will surely miss you.

Margie is gone from his physical form but remains spiritually in our hearts and awaits the day, when our creator delivers his promises.

I find this helps me in troubled times.
John 5:28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice.
Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Isaiah 65: 21 They will build houses and live in them, And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage.
22 They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full.
23 They will not toil for nothing, Nor will they bear children for distress, Because they are the offspring made up of those blessed by God, And their descendants with them.
24 Even before they call out, I will answer While they are yet speaking, I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, The lion will eat straw just like the bull, And the serpent’s food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain, says God.

In closing I would like to say, that when we need comfort 2 CORINTHIANS 3 and 4 says, 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. I'm sure Aunt Addie would agree.
May God, family and friends help your family through this difficult time.

Deepest sympathy from Barb, Allan Winters and family, Ross (Buzz) Pitman
