I am sorry for your loss. Rev 21:4 gives us  hope of a time when we won't have to worry about death anymore.

Grandma Connie, Kyle, Brian & Karen,
I was away last week visiting my sister Carol in Vermont, my sister Barb also flew in from FL. Chris tried to get in touch with me, but I did not check my emails while away... Gramps was such a sweet person and I am glad that I got to spend some time with him, both a Chris & Kyles home and than at Gramps & Grandmas Condo before they moved. I will remember his smile and how his eyes lit up while Chris & Grandma played music together... I am feeling for you all in this time of loss. I guess He got tired & it was time for him to go & rest. May God Bless him & all of you too.
love, Dee & Brian Ziminski
