    Just learned about Edith's death. My condolences to the family. My father was cousin to her second husband Stanley Roomsburg (Glen Keith Tanner). May you be comforted by your many memories.

  • Shellye Andrus (Monday, November 24 14 06:13 am EST)

    Just as God knows the name of each star(Psalms 147:4) he knows what we are going through and comforts us during difficult times such as these.(James 4:8) He will soon “swallow death forever”(Isaiah
    25:8) and “those in memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Jehovah God promises to resurrect or bring our loved ones back to life here on earth. God is all powerful and
    “cannot lie”(Titus 1:2) He will do all that he promises and we will be able to enjoy all his blessings. You may learn more at, may knowing more about his loving kindness help you during this
    difficult time. Shellye and Darren Andrus
