From Pat Britzius

At her funeral on July 20, our family gathered together to say goodbye one last time to our beautiful granddaughter Ivy. I believe that one day we will see her again when Jesus returns to this earth to conquer death and take us to heaven. I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and the many prayers sent up for me and my family these past few weeks. I felt God’s presence amid our suffering, and still do. I hope that we can all try just a little harder to see the good in people and to enjoy the little things in life that we take for granted. For all too quickly they are gone. May God bless every one of our dear family and friends until Jesus comes.
