William, I am sorry to hear of your loss. I will miss Mrs. Avera greatly. It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with her in physical therapy. She was always a hard worker and her personality always made me laugh. Mrs. Avera is no longer suffering and is a guardian angel looking down on everyone she touched while on Earth. I envision Mrs. Frances in heaven playing music along side Jesus, Our Savior. William, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope God will give you the strength during this challenging time to heal from such horrible loss. Trying to remember all the good times and great memories you and Mrs. Frances had together i hope will help you overcome the loss of your most beloved wife. God bless.
I just wanted to express my deepest sorrow over your loss. Please draw comfort from our heavenly father’s promise to, in the very near future, make “death no more” and also bring back our loved ones that have already passed (2Cor 1:3,4 Rev 21:3,4 John 5:28,29 1Thess 4:14). Again my condolences
