My condolences to all the family and friends of Miss Kressin. As you grieve the death of your loved one, our Heavenly Father is grieving also. Death the enemy of all mankind, was never a part of God’s original purpose. We were created to live forever. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has even put eternity in their hearts.” That’s why the pain of loosing a loved in death is such an unbearable thing. But we can be comforted knowing that we have the grand opportunity of seeing our loved ones again in the resurrection that’s spoken of at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. At Revelation 21:4 We have the wonderful promise that all things will be made new again. Pain, mourning, tears, and even death will be things of the past. We can trust that these promises will all come true. In the days ahead may these scriptures be a source of comfort as you reflect on memories you and your loved one have made along the way.

I served lunch at Park Towers for awhile. I then got to know Hilma during our lunch hour. I have to say she was the most positive person I ever got to meet. She never complained and always turned a negative into a positive. I enjoyed her so much. You were very blessed to have her in your lives. I know she will be greatly missed.

Our family will always cherish the time we spent with Hilma. She was a special friend. When my Aunt Dina was living at Park Towers she was always helping her and was a good friend to her. We all enjoyed her humor and was a joy to be around. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. She will always be remembered as a very special family friend. Our sympathies to your family but know she has a special place in heaven cause she was already an angel on earth.
