    If tears showed how much I miss you,
    I’d own an endless sea
    No one knows what I’d do
    Just to bring you back to me.
    Im going to miss you so much Janet.

    To the Landon Family,
    My deepest condolences over the tragic loss of Janet. Losing Janet has left a void in your lives. We mourn because our hearts and minds tell us death is not normal. It is not right. No wonder; because death is God’s enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) Mercifully, God in his infinite wisdom has made arrangements through his Son Christ Jesus to resurrect our loved ones to paradise. March 26, 2013 after sundown is the actual anniversary of the death of our Lord Christ Jesus. His death and resurrection gives us the reassurance that our loved ones will gain life again. May you find solace in this promise. May it comfort you as it gives hope for a future when death will be no more. (John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3, 4; Matthew 5:5) May the God of all comfort bring you and your family peace.

    I am so very sorry for the loss of Janet. My heart goes out to you, to Janet’s daughters Traci and Stephanie, to Janet’s granddaughters and to all your friends and family. I will not be with you on Wednesday, but you will be in my thoughts. Janet was a lovely person who I know brought you so much joy. I cannot imagine the emptiness and grief you are experiencing at her sudden passing and hope you can be sustained a little by remembering all the good times you shared. I hope to see you soon in person and convey just how very sorry I am.
