To the Stoll family, Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. Just think of her as resting, in Gods memory, waiting for the call to paradise eternally. Then there will be no more pain and no more sorrow. No more mourning and no more death.Have faith that in Gods longing hand our loved ones will live at His loving command.John 11:11; John 5:28; Isaiah 33:24; Matthew 5:5; Revelation 21:3-4.My deepest condolences in the sadness of losing Mary. She will be missed.
