Colleen Curran-Bromwell Love you and your beautiful family!!! 12/04/2017 Annie Wingfield Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please find comfort in knowing that soon all those in God's memory will hear Jesus' voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Until that blessed day, may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, grant you peace while many fond memories warm your hearts. 11/29/2017 George & Christine Ragusa My dear wife and I would like to extend our condolences for the loss of your loved one. All of us have experienced the pain of death in some way sad to say. And, so, at difficult times like this we are confronted with the stark reality of how precious and fragile life can surely be (James 4:14). So, my wife and I send this condolence to you with the hope that we can in some small way comfort you as it has comforted us with what the Bible reveals to us about GOOD NEWS from Almighty God. Please be assured that we are in no way trying to impose our faith on you; but we sincerely just want to extend comfort to you during your grief (Proverbs 17:17). As recorded in the Bible, God's only-begotten son, Jesus promises that one day he is personally going to bring back to life all those who have died, just as he did when he was on earth as a man (John 5:28,29; 11:43, 44). Just as death is an enemy to us, it is also an enemy to God (1 Corinthians 15:26). For that reason as well as others, He promises to remove FOREVER all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and DEATH that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10, 11, 29). What a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality and a sure hope we can rely on because it is absolutely impossible for God to lie (Titus 1:2; Isaiah 55:10, 11). It is our hope that you NOT take our word for what has been written in this condolence; but that you please take a moment to read and meditate on all these referenced scriptures in your own Bible (1 Timothy 4:15, 16). My wife and I are confident you will be encouraged and comforted by the marvelous hope God has in store for us (Psalm 1:1-3; John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are sincerely with all of you. 11/11/2017 Dorothy Bradford Samonisky Warren, Amy and Matt: I was so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. She was a special person in hearts of many and will be missed by all who knew her. 11/10/2017 Eva C Willey-Smith 11/10/2017 ovetta creighton So sorry.She was such a nice lady. 11/08/2017 sharon clardy sharon clardy has sent this Expressions of Sympathy card. 11/08/2017 LARRY T.
