I was blessed to be able to care for Mrs.Dart for the past two years at Wiregrass Nursing Home. She was a strong beautiful and so very loving woman. It was an honor to care for her. I was working the day she arrived to live with us and I fell In Love with her immediately. She and I became very close she'd draw me sunflowers which while talking one day she learned were my favorite flower. While I was out with a death in my family she had 2 new beautiful drawings wait for me when I returned to work along with her beautiful smile and a big hug. The bond we shared is why I do this job. And I will cherish my memories with her. I'm broken hearted about her passing. I will always love and miss her and your family will be in my prayers. She will be missed dearly! If I can help in any way please let me know.

Dear Dart Family,
I am writing to extend my condolences. Mere words cannot convey the feelings of disbelief and sorrow that result from losing someone you dearly love. Please do not dismay, for God has a purpose for those who are sleeping in death.
In the book of John 5:28, 29 Jesus says, All in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Yes, your dear loved one will live again, so don’t think of your loss as permanent. Also, Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that, the dead are conscious of nothing at all. How comforting to know that our dear loved ones are not suffering!
It is my sincere hope that you get a great measure of comfort from the Holy Scriptures.
