To the Deon Family,

My deepest heartfelt sympathies to each of you at this time. Your mom/grandmother was a very special lady, filled with spunk and laughter. And oh how she loved her family. Children, grandchildren, great grandchildren. You were her life. Her legacy lives on in each one of you in some way. Some of you have her looks, some have her smile, some have her personality. Each of you carries a piece of her and that is something to be treasured. Hang on to the memories, the good times, hang on to each other, to family and hang on to the Lord Jesus Christ in whom you will find the strength, the comfort, the peace and love during the difficult times. May you feel His loving arms wrapped around you during the days, weeks and months ahead. God bless each and every one of you.

Sandy Kinnear Posted at 01:07pm

Thank you so much for the kind words Charlene. God bless you as well. ❤

Grandma, I will miss visiting you at your house with my dad. I really enjoyed our sleepovers. I wish I could have seen you one more time here in this world but that 's ok. You are with Jesus now. I know I will see you again. I will love you always and forever. Matthew Deon
