No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss. At Rev.21:4 it talks about a hope for mankind that will demolish pain, suffering, and death. I hope you find comfort in those words.

Mrs. Crider was such a sweet friend to my mother at The Oaks. She was a precious soul! Prayers for Mr. Crider and the entire family.
