I am sorry for your loss. I remember as a child growing up when dad raised tobacco up there. Violet would always have the best food waiting for us for lunch. I have fond memories of seeing her outside working with her flowers as I came home from school etc. She always had a smile for you and would always inqure about the rest of the family. She was a wonderful lady who I'm proud to had the honor to have meet. May God give all of your family strenght and comfort.

Life.....so fragile, Loss....so sudden, Heart....so broken,...in the wake of such a loss, we are haunted by things we dont, and may never understand. Yet the solace we seek may not come from answers. So we look for comfort in the belief of love's everlasting connection. May that love lift you and hold you close, and give you peace.
I pray the Lord's comfort is with you during this time.

God has taken another angel home... She was a very special aunt. She was a wonderful caring and loving person. Even though I did not see her often when I did see her it was like we had never been apart. I just don't have the words to express what she meant to me as a person. I will miss her. But like I said, God has taken another angel home. She has made the trip that all of us must make someday....! Heaven is a perfect place with Jesus. She is singing, praising, and rejoicing like never before. There will be no limitations in worshiping her Lord and Saviour. Yes, and she will probably even be dancing too.! What a glorious reunion with all the family and friends that has made the journey before her. Oh, what a happy day...!
I know Ernie, Michelle, Helen, Gabriel, Jeff and all those that loved her will miss her dearly. God will give you comfort, strength and peace in the coming days. Lean on Jesus and He will take care of you just like he has taken care of Aunt Violet. Someday we will make the same journey and will see our loved ones that are waiting for us in Heaven too. She was taken from earth but now she is waiting for us so we will see her again.
Remember all the good times and make plans for your future. Love one another always...!
