Private Condolence

very sorry for your loss, God promises us in his word the Bible that death will be no more, neither will pain nor sorrow, nor outcry be anymore. The former things have come to pass. God promise throughout his word that pain, death and sorrow will all be in the past. Let's look forward to God's promise at Revelations 21 verses 3 and 4.

To my Uncle Joe, I remember visiting you in the summer time when our family still lived in Brooklyn. We would wake up every morning and you say (yell) out who wants pancakes then you would say dollar, quarter, nickel, dime or penny size. One morning I said "Uncle Joe make me the smallest pancake you can" you said ok Carol and "proceeded" to make me the smallest pancake. When you were done you took the spatula and put the "pancake" on my plate. I said Uncle Joe I don't see anything and you said "that's right one smallest pancake - you can't even see it". We laughed so hard. I will truly miss your spirit and laugh. All my love Uncle Joe, your niece CarolAnn
