I wanted to send condolences on behalf of my Mother, Anne (Hughes) Inman.

She and Elayne we very close friends for most of their 90 years, we have many treasure pictures showing them through the years.
My Mom knew and loved both her parents and brothers. She spoke so kindly of all of them. Elayne called some months back and they spoke for sometime about their long and happy lives, there was much laughter in that last conversation. I was happy I happen to be there and got to say hello.

To say my Mom is sad would be an understatement but I'm pretty sure they will be meeting up again soon.

We are thinking of you.

Hi, my name is Ken and I was just reading the obituary for Elayne and wanted to share my condolences. It is a very sad time for us whenever we lose a dear loved one. We want them to be with us always. Thankfully we have family, friends and God's Word the Bible to comfort. us. When Jesus was on the earth he spoke of the future of those who had died. He said "I am the resurrection and the life, he that puts faith in me, even though he dies will live." (John 11:25) He also said "the hour is coming when all those in the grave will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) So the Bible contains Jesus words of a wonderful future hope for those who have died. I hope that these scriptures are comforting to your family.
