    I'm sending my deepest sympathy and a comforting thought to the family of Mrs. Leddie Fontenot. The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort, comforts us in all our tribulation. GOD made hope for the dead possible by sending His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. And Jesus promised that the dead will live again. Read John 5: 21, 28, 29.

    Mom, we loved you and will miss you very much. You are in a much better place now with no more pain of any kind. You have a Lovely Home now in Heaven. You are free now and not in a prison anymore, because of the pain and injuries to your body. Love, Pat & Lee
