My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I coached Maria in high school and she was such a tough competitor. She holds a special place in my heart. My heart is heavy today.


Dear Love One/ Surviving One:
I’m so so sorry to hear of your love one passing away, I know it must be hard since such passings have happened to me/us in my/our life. We can take comfort from what the bible says: “ John 5:28,29 …for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…” IMAGINE !!!! a resurrection of ALL people, your love one is included.
