We were so saddened to hear of our cousin Bonnie's passing. Bonnie was such a special and beautiful person and one of our favorite cousins. She and Dolly, Dwight and family spent time with us in our childhood at the shore and in Williamsport. Those memories are and will always be cherished.

Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one, Bonnie. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with her, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again, in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21:4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the many tears you cry, and He will sustain you, if you let him. I hope that you can find comfort during this difficult time. If you would like to learn more from the bible about why we die or why does our loving Heavenly Father allow so much suffering and injustice, please feel free to go to to find satisfying answers.
