Jim, Marsha, and Wendy. Sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.


Dear Ladwein family, I wanted to take this time to express my sincere condolences to you for your loss. Never did Almighty God Jehovah purpose for the enemy death to take away the ones whom we cherish so much. (Isaiah 25:8a) However, God has purposed to awaken those asleep in the memorial tombs to a life of eternal blessings on a Paradise earth. (John 5:28,29, Revelation 21:4) So, there is hope, and it's not too far away. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Linda, Neal, Ian and Ali, Thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the Ladweins. Mrs. Ladwein always had a smile. And it was a real smile, never forced or fake. She was one of the sweetest women I've met. She lived a full and successful life. You are all testiment to just how dedicated she was to her family. I hope you find comfort in each other and in the image of your parents together again smiling down on you all ... their prides and joys.
