Messages of Condolence

  1. Dear Gonda Family,
    I am so sorry to have read of your loss.
    Please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is what the Bible says at John 5:28,29 as well as Revelation 21:4 In these verses we see that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering including sickness and death. knowing this has always comforted me and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.


  2. We will all miss you Mom. You always had our best interests at heart. Say “hi” to Dad! Thanks for everything throughout my life, and all of our lives, all of your help, and visits, and cooking, and cleaning, and putting up with my shortcomings. You were always on my mind and in my heart, and will stay that way from now on.
    Love You and Miss You already.
    Your Son George

  3. Dear Grandma,

    We will miss you. Thank you for everything you’ve done for all of us over the years. Thank you for visiting us regularly from Cleveland until you were not able. Thank you for the homemade cookies. Thank you for always thinking of us.

    I learned one thing from how you lived your life: always love and respect your family. Family was so important to you. When I was younger, I never appreciated why. I understand now. You taught me to always be kind and supportive of family members, no matter what they say or do. I will do my best to follow your example. You will be missed, but you will live on through the example you’ve set for us all.

    You were always quick to help those in need, whether volunteering at the gift shop at the hospital or helping a family member down on his/her luck. I couldn’t have had a better Grandmother.



  4. Dear Grandma, We will always love you and will miss you very much. we always enjoyed your company and looked forward to everything you ever did for us. Atleast now you are at peace and with grandpa looking down on us. we will always remember you as being very tough and not afraid to speak your mind. We love you very much and you will not be forgotten, Love Brian

    P.S. we miss your cookies

  5. Mom,

    Thank you, for all you have done for us over the years! I will remember all your visits with us, we certainly had fun! Oh my – we went shopping, to Cypress Gardens, Disney, the beach, etc etc.,. Plus the many restaurants! Thanks for helping me with the family’s genealogy and with my Hallmark ornament collection. And every Christmas you would send us a large box of your Christmas cookies! They were so good! You were a great cook!
    Now you are at peace and with dad. You will always be remembered!

    Love – Jody

  6. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
