    I am sorry for the loss to her family, but she is in a better place than this world. Wow, 105 yrs old. She & her sister Myrtle had the prettiest skin to be in their older years. Ms. Craft said they got that for both parents. They never looked anywhere near their real age.

    Condolences to the Craft family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” to May God bring you comfort and peace.

    My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Revelation 21:3-5 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.
