So sorry for your loss. Ms. Monni Ruth was a special person with a giving heart. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Dear Tew 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.

Patricia, Gwen and family I am deeply saddened by this news. She was a great friend and inspiration to all who knew her. I remember so many great times with your mom and dad when we were all so young. Even though I have not seen her in a long time, I have thought of her and your dad often. She will definitely be missed by all who have ever known her. May God give you all peace and continued loving memories of this beautiful lady! Love Sylvia
