Dear Celia and Family, We extend our sympathy to each member of this family. We are praying for all during this sad
time. We send our love!


What a beautiful woman, Mrs. Hedgepeth was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her
love and joys, she was an amazing woman. I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped
me d eal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort.
One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, "Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life. The
one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and
I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your
beloved mother, grandma and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -
