Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Dawn, John and family I am so sorry for your loss. I remember growing up with my bff Dawn and going to Jersey City for dinner with my adopted family and going down the shore on vacation. It was always a great time and Mr. and Mrs. Launder (as I will always call them) always made me feel welcome and like family. I will never forget them. Now they are together and will live their happily ever after in a more peaceful life. R.I.P.

Uncle John, the only comfort I have right now is knowing you are with your one true love! My Aunt Pat. You always made me feel not as only as your niece but one of your own children. Growing up I always remember how you would always make me smile and laugh. Most of all at Christmas time with all the frosty's! Rest well my uncle

I would like to wish my condolences to the friend of the family of Mr Launder. In these times you must turn to God he promises at Revelations 21;4 that "he will wipe out every tear from thier eyes,+ and death will be no more,+ neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.?? This has brought me Comfort and hopefully it will do the same for you.
