    To the Velve Luckey family. The precious memories will always be yours. Jesus offered
    your Wife, Sister, Mother, Grandmother, Friend, Aunt, Confidant, etc, an invitation to a most glorious and joy-filled distination, a future free of pain, sorrow, and sickness. Death
    is a word which may trigger images of darkness, grief and maybe fear, but God say fear not He wants us to live and die with confidence, knowing we belong to the victorious,
    risen King. When He die on the cross and rose from the grave, death was defeated.
    Phil 1:21. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Praying with you knowing that all is well wth thee. LOVE in JESUS!
