Condolences to the family of a wonderful lady.
Mahatta and I shared some good times (and more than a few jalapeno peppers) during the five years I worked with her in Halliburton's advertising department many years ago. God bless.

Dear family and friends of Mahatta Jo Flinn-Marsh, I am deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one. I would like to share some biblical information that can bring comfort, the Bible text of Acts 24: 15 says "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." It brings us comfort when a loved one passes away and also hope to be able to see our loved ones who have died again. On the website that is available in your language, you can find more consoling information that could help you in these difficult times.
