We are so very glad that we were able to pop in and visit in Florida a couple of years ago. I know she will be greatly missed by her loved ones remaining here on earth, but now she is more fully alive/aware of God than ever. May she be received into Heaven to behold the face of God for all eternity in absolute perfect love. May all of her loved ones be blessed to come closer to Christ for having known her. My sorrow for the pain and "loss" felt by those yet remaining on this earth; my prayers for the repose of her soul. With love, Cheryl Swearingen (formerly Sims; daughter of Helen and Bill)

There is no pain any longer, no sorrow. She went ahead of you to make a place for you all to gather. May God Bless You As Well Her.
