You have our deepest sympathy. May the God of Love and Peace be with you and your family. May it console you to know that others care and think of you. We ask God to bless you with courage to bear the sorrow that fills your heart. John 5:28,29

TROTTY FAMILY, ,

Our sympathy & prayers are extended to all family members at this difficult time of Marilyn's death. She was a wonderful person with a kind heart always there for you if needed.

Ron & Darlene Barta, Hot Springs Village, Arkansas

My sincerest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing someone in death. May you take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4, which says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse brought me peace when I experienced loss, I hope it can do the same for you. May the memories you have give you strength during this difficult time.
