  1. Our hearts go out to you and your family with the loss of your dear loved one. There are no words to take away sadness when you lose someone you love. In our time of deepest need the tenderness of God is a refuge like no other. He alone understands our sorrows and draws near in love to wipe away our tears
    When my mother passed away, we found the resurrection hope very comforting.
    May the resurrection hope sustain you. A loved one lost can grieve the heart, and makes us yearn for tomorrow, when Jehovah will keep the promise he made of no pain, no death, no sorrow found at Revelation 21:4.

  2. As a former Pastor of Sacred Heart Church, I remember how generous Betty was in sharing her gifts and talents for the honor and glory of God, for the common good and for the mission of Sacred Heart Church. May this faithful servant rest in peace!

  4. So very sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. We enjoyed playing cards with her at Sacred Heart. Our deepest
