I send My Deepest Condolence to The Jarvis Family on the lost of a Dear wife. Mother Grandmother and Friend. I want to say to You Don how deeply sorry I am to hear this sad news. I was so sure when I was talking to you yesterday that Kat will still be here for another while but I guess Jesus had other plans for her. She is finish with work on earth even though she will be missed dearly. Hold on to your memories. We love you. Gold Bless Kats Family..R.I.P Dear Kat.

We know we won’t see her tomorrow,
In the shadows of the night we let her go,
In God’s loving arms is the place where she’ll be,
She now sees the glimpse of eternity.
And somehow, someday we will be reunited with her.

The world has lost, but heaven has gained a ray of sunshine through Catherine’s passing. Death is only a bridge towards eternal life with God. Heaven is rejoicing for another soul has finally reached her true home. Our hearts are saddened to hear such a loss of someone so dear. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
