  1. My deepest sympathy to June’s family and friends. May you find comfort and hope in the promise at Revelation 21:4 where it says “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    June was my Grandma and she was a wonderful woman! She will be missed. I remember awesome times just talking with her, rubbing her feet, camping, or just hanging out. Love you Grandma:) know that you are dancing with Jesus now 🙂
