My deepest condolences to family and friends of Gertrude. I know this is a very difficult time for you. God knows your deep heartache and the many tears you shed and he wants to sustain you. In the Bible at 2 Corinthians 4:7 it says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal,” to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. We can recover because of our hope. When Jesus was on earth he saw the grief that his friends Martha and Mary experienced at the death of their brother, Lazarus. His heart was touched by their great sadness that he cried (John 11:35) and then he was moved to resurrect Lazarus. Everyone was so joyful at having Lazarus back with them. This example is to hopefully give you assurance that he will also resurrect Gertrude. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out.” Jesus was referring to the resurrection. This is our amazing hope that anchors us. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us, keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness so we have the power to go on. When God brings the reality of his promised resurrection, he will turn all your tears of pain into tears of joy.

To the Fabre' Family My prayers are with you as you go through this sad time of your life. Gertrude, was a very humble and pleasant person. She always greeted me with " hello cousin". May she have her well deserved peace in her heavenly home. Peace and Love, Cousin Gail

Ken my heart goes out to your family because your Mom meant to much to me. When my Mother passed Mrs. Sedonia Celestin Johnson she kept up with me weekly to see how I was doing. My Mom was her Teacher and I will really miss her Pecan Candy she baked for us. You will always be my Brother. Thank you. Arnold Johnson
