    To dear Monone and dear family, Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers these difficult days. Bob was such a very talented and caring and loving person. His garden knowledge never ceased to amaze me. He would rattle off these Latin botanical names without effort. Geesh - I thought it was an Iris. As I remember, that was one of his favorite flowers. I, to this day and will always, think of him when I see one in bloom. Now I can ask for his garden guidance from heaven. Blessings to all. Miss you all. Love and prayers, Len and Diane.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is such a difficult time for the entire family. I hope you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. At John 5:28, 29 the man Jesus Christ said, "...the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." This scripture helps us to appreciate that one day in the near future we can see our loved ones whom we have lost to that enemy death. What a wonderful hope for the future. I am confident that this scripture and other verses in the Bible will provide some solace and relief during this time of sorrow.
