When we leave this earth, the love that we have given and received remains behind to light the lives of those we touched. Aunt Betty touched my life in a special way. Her words of wisdom and the memories she shared with me, I will always hold dear. She lived, she loved, she laughed, and now she enjoys ETERNITY forevermore!
Be encouraged family. Love, Pam

Our thoughts are with the Hillman family. We are sorry for your loss. One day soon, death will be eliminated for good (Isaiah 25:8), and we'll have the opportunity to welcome back our loved ones.
