With a heavy heart I say good bye and rest in peace to my dear cousin Erma! Erma was a person of great faith throughout her life! She knew our Lord and believed His promise of eternal life which she is now enjoying in His Heavenly Home! Erma was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother,
and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 -
"The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away
the tears from all faces." For more comfort, I turn to the website
at" www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
