Guest Book

  • Nora I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain and grief of loosing someone we love can seem unbearable. Something that can be comforting is God's word. As 1 Corinthians 1:3&4 says; ...the God of all comfort, who comforts all in our trials...The Bible helps us to understand how God feels about death. Isaiah 25:8 says God will defeat our enemy death, and it will be gone forever. -More comforting truths can be found in a book called "What Does the Bible Really Teach". I hope you will look into this subject further. I know it will bring you comfort and peace as it did me. Sincerely Nora
  • Frances Dorough I am glad to be the first one to write in this guest book. Aunt Frances was so special to me in many ways too numerous to mention. First of all, I am her name sake. She took care of me as an infant because my parents were so involved with my frail older brother's medical problems. We have been together at many family gatherings and the photos bear this out with pictures of my parents, grandmother, cousins, aunts, uncles and of course my wonderful Uncle Bernard who treated her like a princess. She lived a wonderful life as exhibited by the joys shared with her children and grandchildren. May she rest in peace now that she has joined him along with the many others who have gone before her. We all miss her dearly but know the family rejoices in remembering her remarkable life. Niece, Frances Dorough
