Steve and Debbie

I am very sorry to read about the death of your mother Ruth last Friday.
She was a very welcoming and happy person. I always thought she was more of a ring master with all the scouting, church and shoe activity in the house.
I will remember her on all Soul's Day.
I will remember her in and the family in my prayers.

From My Spot in the Vine yard,

The Gilliam Family.

Sincere sympathy to all the Gilliam Family in the loss of the wife of the late Russell Gilliam, a Mother and grandmother. I met Ruth at my sister's visitation nine years ago. I knew Russell for many years as a child and teenager back home in Lennoxville. May Ruth RIP and be with her beloved Russell. May the happy memories you all have help to sustain you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Alice (Bassett) Johnston of Newmarket, Ontario.

Je suis sincèrement désolée pour cette grande perte que vous vivez présentement. La mort est notre pire ennemi. Heureusement, notre grand créateur a un bel espoir pour l'avenir dans sa parole la bible. On lit en Révélation ou Apocalypse 21 : 4 "Et il essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux et la mort ne sera plus ; ni deuil, ni cri, ni douleur ne seront plus. Les choses anciennes ont disparu ".
Bon courage
