I did not know your loved one, but I am so sorry for your loss. The majority of us are not strangers to loss. Many who have experienced loss find these practical suggestions helpful. Allow yourself time to grieve, talk about your thoughts and feelings, accept help, draw closer to God, visualize the resurrection. Doing these things has given many people, myself included, the strength to go on. My sincere condolences at this difficult time.

My fondest memories of Mrs. Armitage were when Diane and I were in high school. Debbie Long and I would come over to Diane’s house and hang out. Mrs. Armitage was always so funny and kind. Love, prayers and hugs go out to those in need. We will always have our memories close to our hearts ♥️ ♥️♥️ (Susie Stahl Gerrard)
