Celebrating the life of Mrs. Margarete "Gretel" Brown
Thank you for signing Mrs. Margarete "Gretel" Brown's Guestbook
This is a beautiful tribute to your beloved family member that you have lost. May the cherished memories you have, bring you all a measure of joy despite the deep sorrow you are experiencing. Soon, Gretel will hear the Lord's voice calling her to come out of her memorial tomb and return to you all as John 5:28,29 explains. All things will be new again at that time, and sickness, old age and death will be no more. What a glorious future awaits us. Revelation 21:4,5, Isaiah 33:24 So very sorry for your loss.
