Well today I thought I would be celebrating another birthday with you, instead I'll chat a little about the wonderful mom I was able to share so many more beautiful birthdays with... Let's start with the movie dates, dining out with you which was always a treat for us to take you out on the town because it was you who would always have a meal cooked for everyone. Then of course the gifts we would buy was always in your favorite color, red. Now how much red can one person have? Well for my mom it was never too much red a person could have. Today I'll close by saying, your children and the others' children, your family, friends and many others will miss your meals, stories, smile, and a few good curse words we received along the way... Thank you for caring for us, never giving on us, and loving not only your family but others to the sweet-end.
If it is possible; I love you even more,

Vickie Bryant

I am very sorry for your loss. It is not an easy time to go through. Talking about it with someone always helps, and their is no one better than God, he even gives us in the Bible Hope in John 5:28, 29 where he promises to bring back to life our loved ones. And in Revelation 21:4 he promises us a better future where we won't suffer no more. To know more visit

When someone we love dies, it leaves a hole in our hearts. This sorrow was felt by Jesus, Mary and Martha when Lazarus their brother died. Jesus said to Martha: “I am the resurrection and the life, He that exercises faith in me even though he dies, will come to life. Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” Then he proceeded to resurrect Lazarus and he promises to resurrect all those in the memorial tombs. Please read John 5:28,29 in your Bible and may this hope bring your family comfort. Jackie will truly be missed.

May the Edwards family find comfort in the reminder that God will do amazing things on earth for all who love and obey him. Revelation 21:4 relates that when God's will is done on earth, people will no longer feel pain, grow old, or die. Isaiah 33:24 promises that no one will ever get sick again. Isaiah 37:9-11, 29 assures us that the righteous will live on earth forever and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. Jesus' sacrificial death offers this future for everyone who exercises faith in him. (John 3:16) Treasure these promises for Jacqueline!
