Celebrating the life of Madelyn Weant
Thank you for signing Madelyn Weant's Guestbook
My condolences to the family: When someone dies many say, "I want to see them again." The Bible tells us this is possible please read, John 5:28-29. This will happen in the near future. Please read Revelation 21: 3-4 and notice this fact death will be no more. May this be of comfort to you and your family at this time and in the future.
