As you try to comprehend this profound loss know that it is okay to grieve over the death of your dear loved one. The true God in the heavens feel your pain - Isaiah 41:10. He knows your suffering and will help you cope with your grief. Job 10:1 says " I will speak out in my bitter distress". Have faith in God's promise written at Acts 24:15 which expresses the hope of seeing your dead loved ones again. It is comforting for us to know that God does not cause suffering and that one day it will end. 1 Corinthians 15:26

Jimmy, David, and Beth Ann, Wow this is such a shock!!! I loved Aunt Wanda as I grew up. She was a sweet woman. Everytime Aunt Debbie and Uncle Donnie came to their house or to pop-pop Shepherd's house I always wanted to go. I loved going to church with them at Faith also. May she R.I.P!!! Now she's back with Uncle Jimmy!!!! Gone but never forgotten.
