Celebrating the life of Frances "Fanny" Miller
Thank you for signing Frances "Fanny" Miller's Guestbook
I genuinely regret your loss. I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 which reads: "Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." Thus, while you await the Paradise where no one will be sick and die, may you lean on Jehovah God to cope with your separation from our beloved Fanny. —Psalm 37:29

Although Fanny and I never officially met, we had many mutual friends and exchanged e-mail, pictures, birthday cards, etc. She adored her family - we expressed amazement in how quickly our "wee ones/granddarlin's" grew. Fanny had a wonderful sense of humor - look out God, Fanny is in the House!

Mawmaw, no words can describe the feeling of missing you and knowing you aren't here anymore. The great comfort is knowing you're no longer in pain, and you're in a place far better than we can even imagine. Loving you always, LACLC-Kayley.
