Celebrating the life of Mary A. Jensen
Thank you for signing Mary A. Jensen's Guestbook
The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

To Mary's Family: I lived next door growing up to Mary and Dale and she was always happy when I would visit, she always made time to talk with me as a teenager and even after I moved away and got married we shared Christmas cards every single year until they were unable to do so. She would include pictures of Karen and Michael and grandchildren each year as I would do the same. So sorry to read of her passing in the paper. I live in Charleston now and by time I read this there was no way I could drive and be able to attend her service. I wish to extend to you my heartfelt condolences in the loss of this wonderful lady who was my dear friend. May you have wonderful memories to cherish and know she and Dale were loved by everyone who knew them and will miss them terribly. May God Bless you children in the loss of your mother and may you know others share in your grief and sorrow.

My prayers are with you Karen and Michael and your families. She and mother are now reunited and they always had such fun together. I can see them now flying around in heaven looking for a dress shop or a concert. May you find comfort in knowing what fine parents you had and that they are in the arms of Jesus fior eternity.
