    What a loving woman and neighbor. Heavens gain but our loss. Rudy, Marlene and I are praying that God will grant you comfort . the apostle Paul said, to be absent from the body , is to be present with the Lord. It is so hard my friend to loose your soul mate. But someday God will wipe away every tear. And you will see her again. Oh God please help this family, in JESUS name I pray.
