To uncle Gusy, Brian, Ricky, Sid, Olie, & Mary,

It is so hard to honor aunt Ethel’s life in offering condolences.She truly was a beautiful soul. When we lose a loved one on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. Cherish your memories of aunt Ethel….hold them in your heart and may this bring you peace. Angels aren’t in heaven with with wings and a halo but are ordinary people who are kind and caring living ordinary lives. But they have special qualities that touch our hearts and souls in many ways. That was aunt Ethel. RIP Aunt Ethel

Condolence from Eric and Maryann Whynot on August 1st, 2016 4:49 pm

We send our deepest sympathies to Uncle Gus and family, as well as, the Wolfe family on the passing of Aunt Ethel.
Take comfort in knowing that she is suffering no more. We look forward to the time when the “last enemy” death is done away with and we will be reunited with our loved ones again on a paradise earth. The Bible promises this at Revelation 21:4 and John 5:28, 29., What a joyous time that will be. I will remember Aunt Ethel as a kind and loving person. She would be “humming” her songs softly and also her sweet smile. May your fond memories be a comfort to you in this time of sorrow and grief. Love to all,

Eric and Maryann Whynot
