My condolences go to the whole family, I will continue to pray that the Lord will strengthen you during this time of grief. Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Prayerful condolences are extended to the family of the late Malvina Sands. Yellow Elder Primary was the bomb when she was Vice Principal there many years ago.
Her colleague, Mrs. Judith Cumberbatch (nee Wilson), my Mum, sends her best wishes to the family as well, along with my other 4 siblings who also attended Yellow Elder.
May your soul rest in peace eternal, Mrs. Sands, and rise in glory. Amen
