    I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,…2 Tim: 7&8. It is never easy to say good-bye to those we love so dearly. May God give you Strength, Hope, Comfort and Peace during this difficult time. Although our hearts are heavy, know that Sandra is enjoying the Promise of everlasting life with Our Lord and Savior and the many loved ones gone on before. May the memories that you have made over the years warm your heart. Know that this is a temporary separation. We too will experience that Great Reunion. No more sorrow, no more pain, no more tears. HOME AT LAST!! Our prayers are with you. Wayne & Margaret Suits
