Guest Book

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one Irene Reeder Spizzo. I hope you find the below Bible verse comforting during this time of sorrow. Revelation 21:4 “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.”

To the Spizzo Family. The primary source of consolation is our compassionate heavenly Father. I hope you can find comfort in this scripture. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,+ the Father of tender mercies+ and the God of all comfort,+ 4 who comforts* us in all our trials*+ so that we may be able to comfort others+ in any sort of trial* with the comfort that we receive from God.+ 5
