Condolence & Memory Journal

When I lost you
I wish I could see you one more time , come walking through the dood but I know that is impossible, I will hear you voice no more
I know you can feel my tears and you don't want me to cry yet, my hear is broken because I can't understand why someone so precious as Mrs Virginia had to die I know you suffered too much that's why I say repose in peace.
I will be praying for you and your family until this time of suffering and sadness is over.
May God give you the strength to overcome the loss .
