To Ruby’s Family, please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your mom.. Ruby was a Grace Hospital classmate of mine. “The hearty class of ’59B”. After graduation I “followed a guy in the Navy” out of the province and only saw her at reunions, the most recent was the Alumni dinner this past June. Her pleasant smile and sense of humour were intact.
Your mom was always proud of her children and grandchildren and loved you all.
May she rest in peace and may love sustain you.
Our sympathy to you Sylvia and all the family, on the passing of your mom. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. May the Lord give you peace in knowing that she is with him.
Comfort comes in knowing
death is not the end.
Those who die in Christ
will assuredly live again.
Death has been swallowed up in victory
Thanks be to God! He gives us the
, victory through our Lord Jesus Christ
