I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5;28,29 that reads: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."

Marlene is a wonderful soulful cousin and childhood friend. Her presence on earth cannot be filled, for there is none like her or able to fill her place. I regret that I was unable to come and see her before she left our earth, but I hope she knows I remember her with joy. Blessings to her family and friends. Novella
