    When it comes to passing away, when we come to consider it closely, passing on is the true goal of our entire existence, I have formed during the last few years such a close relationship with the best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but his image is indeed now – very soothing, calming, comforting and consoling!

    And I thank my God for carefully and gracefully granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to true happiness, contentment, bliss & delight – HEAVEN.

    Dear Arlene and Sandy, Mark and Sharon,
    Molly was one of those special people you just assumed would go on forever. She certainly lived a very active life when most people her age took things easy. Although she was alone for many years, you all gave her support and caring. She was a lucky lady having so many to love and love her.
