Editor, Over the past several weeks, our families have experienced the best of what living in a small community can offer. When my niece, Danielle, passed away suddenly, the outpouring of love, care and concern was immediate and heartfelt.
We were overwhelmed with the number of people that Danielle knew and touched during her short time with us. She left a legacy to our family and to many others in the community that will live on forever.
Her life was enriched by the presence of so many good friends, friends she left behind to help our family through this very difficult time.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of them for the prayers, words of comfort and support you provided to us. We appreciated all those who were pallbearers or honorary pallbearers, sent food, flowers or cards, provided personal services, shared their remembrances, or otherwise assisted our family during this time of sorrow.
Know that our family finds healing in God's love and embrace and in knowing others loved Danielle and truly cared. Each of you had a special place in her heart. May God bless you all!
Joelle Garlow and the Bruce and Burrill families
