I just learned of Maryann's passing and my heart is heavy. I worked with Maryann at H.F. Lenz Company. She always had a smile on her face and was so very kind. She was an exceptional Administrative Assistant and was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone. She balanced her home and work life with tremendous enthusiasm and strength. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family during this most difficult season.

It is so evident that Maryann was deeply loved by her family and friends. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your terrible loss. Death is so hard to take, especially when someone is still relatively young. My own daughter is 51. Revelation 21:4 gives us the wonderful hope that things will not always be like this. That verse states: And 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. The beautiful resurrection will restore life to our loved ones who have passed away. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust (the grave)...and the earth shall cast out the dead. (Isaiah 26:19) King James Version.

Sorry for your loss. To lose a loved one is hard. To lose your mother surely adds to the pain of death. Many have found comfort in the promises at John 5:25, Acts 24:14 and Revelation 21:4. The God given hope of being able to see your loved one again. May these promises bring you hope. May that hope bring you comfort.
