Of course we will always remember Helen, but we know she had a great life, lots of laughs, & all of you had such a wonderful relationship with her.

    To the Roth family,
    We are truly sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are frequent for those who suffer due to the anguish of losing a loved one. We all experience this loss but the Bible teaches that soon death will end at Revelations 7:15-17.
    That scripture brought us comfort when my mother in law passed. Take peace and hope that Jehovah provides. The video below gives comfort from the Bible and about the end of death. bit.ly/Deathjworg
