Carolyn and Cesar, Frank and Jeri, your Mom made a difference in the world around her. She touched so many lives with love and light. How blessed I am to have been one of them. I miss my dear Aunt Idie, and I cherish all the time we spent together. Words cannot convey how much she is loved. Sincere sympathy for your loss, Betty Froats.

May you have comfort in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises that
your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a beautiful, peaceful
paradise on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
