Dear Sprandel Family; While reading the online obituary, I observed the death of your loved one. Death is an enemy to mankind and who can understand it? It can and dose have a devastating effect on you and your family as well. Can you imagine reading a newspaper with the headline; "When Death is Swallowed Up Forever....." What a wonderful time that will be. Revelation 21:4 offers this hope, it states: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. " The former things have passed away." What a comforting hope. If you would be interested in learning even more, I can send you a little tract that is entitle "What Hope for Dead Loved Ones"? If you have any Questions please feel free to contact me at this e-mail address here (b.molina56@yahoo.com). I offer my sincere condolences, may the God of peace be with you and your family. Sincerely Yours, Brandy Molina

What a neat lady! I've known Zelda since I was little. She was always enjoyable to stop and talk with. I'll miss seeing her once in a while
