  6. Terra Dillard, BMV Retiree :

    To the family of Delphine “Judy,” you have my condolences in your loss. Death was never God’s purpose for the human family. Adam and Eve were placed in the garden of Eden (paradise), told to have many children, and to fill and extend paradise all over the earth (Genesis 1:28)! God’s purpose was for them to live forever as long as they did not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. If they did, they would positively die (Genesis 2:15-17). Because of their disobedience, they passed sin and death to the human family (Romans 5:12). Very soon, God will reverse the effects of sin and eliminate death forever and His promises will come true! – Isaiah 25:8

  7. Bruce Eatmon :

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of mourning and loss

  8. Greg you and your family are in our prayers and thoughts, We know that GOD will give you the strength that you will need to get through this very difficult time.

Richard, Donna and Ryan Brown.
