Dear La Rosa Family, I wanted to send my deepest condlences for your loss. May you find comfort in special memories as well as the love of family and friends. I have also found much comfort in passages such as John 5:28,29 and Rev. 21:4 and I hope you will as well. Once again I am so sorry for your loss. Laura

Aunt Loretta and family, know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this extremely difficult time. Know that God will see you through, lean on him, ask him for help, he is a loving and giving Lord, he will be with you every step. Above all always remember your husband and father. Memories cannot be taken away. Something I have learned since Jim's death is; "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but Love leaves a memory no one can steal." God be with you. Patty
