  4. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Vivian. When Jesus Christ was here on earth he healed some of the people from whatever illnesses they had. He also restored some of the people that had fallen asleep in death back to life. One of them was his friend Lazarus that had been dead for four days John Chapter 11. This foreshadowed what Jesus Christ will do in the very near future right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

    We were so saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Kral. She was always so beautiful, kind and loving. We will never forget the wonderful wedding shower she gave us way back in ’91. It does bring us some comfort to know that she is with Mom, who truly loved her.
