Words can't express the hurt and sympathy I feel for you all...Just know that even in her pain, she had expressed to me her love and concern about all of you, and your well being. It was truly in her heart. You always came first and foremost in her caring heart. Be assured that she is not gone...but just awaiting your arrival to the great celebration she received when she entered into Heaven's Gates, welcomed by all who went before her. Now she's smiling upon you...When you see the sun, remember her smile...When you feel the sun, remember her warm heart and the strong and loving care you felt just being in her presence...Know the Son, and know you'll see her again. God bless you, and give you strength to live as she wanted for you..safe and happy, giving your love just as she unselfishly gave hers...We loved her, and will miss her terribly, but please know that Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal...

Sorrowfully, Doris Jeter and Family

April & Family,

We were sadden to hear of your lost. A mother is a "Special" gift from God. Please know that God knows how heavy your hearts are at this time. Rely on God to take care of all your pain. God has made an arrangement that will soon be a fulfilled for you to see your "Mother", Sister, Wife, Grandmother and friend again. At John 5:28,29 his promise hope for us is written. Soon we will be able to see our loved ones we've lost to the sting of death. Love, The Striplings
