Condolences left for Leonard H. Reilmann:

    I will miss my Dad dearly!! He suffered from Alheimers Disease which took him away from all that he loved. Now he is at peace. (I forgot to add the Alzheimers Foundation as a choice for donations in his memory....where was my mind.) Thank you for all the wonderful nurses at Rosewood in Swansea as well as Vitas Hospice.

    Our deepest condolences to Barb, Trish and Lenny at the loss of their father. It is a blessing that Leonard is now a whole person again, mentally and physically, and sharing the promise of a Heavenly home with his loved ones who had gone on before him. May God give comfort to those who will mourn Leonard's passing.

    My deepest sorrow to the family for your loss, during Bible times the Shunammite woman leaped for joy when her loved one was resurrected to life again on earth -2Kings 4:32-37, and when Lazarus was resurrected, no doubt his sisters Mary and Martha leaped for joy – John 11: 43, 44. We too, will soon leap for joy when we are reunited with our loved ones on a paradise earth with the prospect of eternal life and no resident will say: I am sick –John 5:27-29; Psalms 37:11 29; Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:3, 4.
