Sending sincere condolences to the loving Family of Ramona Margie Medina. Losing a loved one is so difficult. May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of the joyful times you've shared. May you also find strength in the tender words of comfort found at Psalms 94:19.
We look forward to the time when God's Kingdom replaces funerals with happy reunions; a time when tears of joy will replace tears of sorrow and death will be no more (Revelations 21:4) nor will any resident say, "I am sick" Isaiah 33:24."
Dee Rich, NM
god bless you and all the family
Love you all
