1 thought on “Alice Jean Hughes”

  1. Dear Hughes Family, I am sorry for your loss and you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can have comfort from Gods word the Bible.
    Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. And this is a promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of encouragement to the family.
