Memories Timeline


  1. May your family have many happy memories of you as you impacted their life. May the GREANEY family be lifted in prayer at this time and turn to Christ for comfort.

  2. I am incredibly sorry for your loss of Edith. What profound impact it has on us when we see our loved one battling with illness and the strength that comes from within to continue with us living as long as possible. One thing that has helped me find comfort is God’s promise at Revelation 21:3-5, it says “God himself will be with them. 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.” May the hope God gives of a brighter future ahead, when such tragedies will be a thing of the past bring you solace and warmly embrace you, helping to carry you through the difficult mourning process in the days ahead! With deep sorrow!
