    Dear Shirley, “Eddie”, & Family,
    May your heart be filled with warm thoughts
    and treasured moments of your dearly
    departed loved one Ronald E. Wilson.
    Please find comfort knowing that Jehovah God
    will fulfill the promise that he has made when
    there will be no more tears, no more pain,
    no more sorrow, and death will be gone forever.
    Please read this in your Bible found in the book of
    Revelation 21:4, 5. Jesus also had much to say
    about death you may read his comforting words
    found at John 5:25, 28, 29.
    You have our deepest sympathy,
    Ms Brenda McGaughy, Mrs Jackie Stiger,
    Mrs Norma Shearer, and Ms Jan Grabovich
