To the Family of Shirley Ervin: We will dearly miss Shirley. We enjoyed mowing her lawn every summer; matter of fact we just called Hands of Grace to see if we should mow it this year. I used to read my devotionals to her while my husband mowed. Helped her with her TV and disc changer. We wish the family peace during this time of grief. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Sincerely, The Niner's.

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one. We can find comfort and hope in God's promise of a resurrection found at John 5:28 when we will be united with our loved ones. Revelation 21:4 tells us that God will do away with sorrow, pain and death will be no more.
