I was very sorry to read of Cricket’s death at such a young age. I worked with Becky 40 years ago and knew all of her children. Deepest sympathy to the family.

Becky, I am so sorry to learn about Cricket’s death. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family during this sad time. I think of the vivacious young girl who was part of the Youth Group at Sunset Hills those many years ago! I have many cherished memories from those days. I just pray that our Heavenly Father will enfold you in His arms of love and give you peace and comfort during this time.

I wish to express my deep condolences for your loss. I also wanted to share a comforting scripture from the bible. At Revelation 21:4 it says “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” God promises to one day remove all suffering, sickness, and death. He also promises to bring back to life those who have died. (Acts 24:15)

My prayers are with all those who were close to Thelma. If you wish to know more about Gods promises for the future I invite you to visit
