My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult loss. As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.

The pain endured cannot be relieved, the loss can never be replaced, the memories can never be cast away; but with some amount of compassion, thoughtfulness, gentle words, one can surely help ease the pain. These condolence messages will help remind you, that although death separates us from one another in body, in spirit, the person always remains alive. Alive through the kind words they said to us, the caring deeds they did for us, the lesson that they taught us, and the example that they were to us. Let us remember them in our prayers, in our fond memories, in our everyday actions, so that remembrance brings joy, not tears.

My sincere condolences and keeping you all in our prayers. May She rest in peace....

Arly, I know you are in a better place. In God's arms do you lie. I will miss you my dear friend. I know we spoke of the pain between us with cancer. We shared so much over the years and much more in the past years or so. Now you pain is gone and I happy for that.

For the family and relatives of Arly, my sincere condolences to you all. I wish the world had many more like her. Her kindness, caring, gentleness, made her the great person she is.

I love you, my fear friend

"May tender memories soften your grief,
May fond recollection bring you relief,
And may you find comfort and peace in the thought
Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought...
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your loved one from your side.
When memory paints in colors true,
the happy hours that belonged to you."
--Helen Steiner Rice

It is difficult to find the words to express the pain that I share with John and the family at this difficult time. Arly and I have been online friends for many years and life won't be the same without her. I pray that the Heavenly Father provides the comfort of knowing that she is no longer in pain and embracing her beloved Joyce. Farewell, Arly. You will be missed, but not forgotten. Love, Diana Burke

Just a Memory Away

I'm no longer by your side but no need to weep;

I'v left sweet recollections

I'm hoping you keep.Eternal joy and memories

stay in our heart forever,Strengthing our special

bond that parting cannot sever,Now it's time to journey on,

So let your faith be stong, For I am in a better place...

I'm home where i belong.And if times of loneliness bring

sorrow and dismay,Don't despair, for i am here.

I 'm senting my prayers your way .YOU WILL BE MISSED
