Dear Family,
I would like to send my condolences. It can be extremely difficult to lose a loved one. That is why I wanted to share the hope found in the bible, the hope of the resurrection. Jesus stated at John 5:28,29 "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will come out." And at Revelation 21:3,4 it states that there will be a time when "...death will be no more."
These scriptures give us hope for the future as respects to our dead loved ones. Those scriptures have brought comfort to me and I hope it does the same for your family.
With Love,

To the whole, Hood, Lacasse, Frazier, Turner, and Watson Families, I am so deeply sadden that Gramma Watson has passed into heaven. She was a sweet, kind, loving, beautiful lady. I have always called her Gramma Watson, since my mom Janet (Beaulieu) Elliott, and my aunt Janice (Watson) Lacasse, were best friends for 68yrs. Our families were intertwined, we spent holidays together, and family cookouts, birthdays, and Gramma Watson was always so much like my having a grandmother on my mom's side. She was a great cook, wonderful homemaker, loved her sweets, she touched so many lives. I have many, many happy childhood memories with her in the center. I am sorry for your loss, take comfort she is in heaven with, Janice, and her late husband Russ, and grandson David, and my mom Janet, they are all together have a gabfest, and laughing with no more pain. Take care of yourselves, I love you all very much. Cheryl
