Condolence Messages

  1. Betty Humphrey

    Dear family we are sorry to hear about your loss death is difficult for family and friends however the Bible holds out hope for our deceased love ones found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 and verses 28 and 29. Why not read these scriptures in your personal copy of the Bible.

    Peacefully Yours

    For additional information about the resurrection hope please refer to JW.Org

  2. You have my condolences in your loss of Vackers. Death was never God’s purpose for the human family. He put Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden (paradise), and they were to extend it, to have many children, and to fill the earth (Genesis 1:28). They were 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 die (Genesis 2:15-17). Very soon, God will reverse the effects of sin by eliminating death forever! – Isaiah 25:8

    We are so sorry that we will not be there in person to convey our condolences. Though we may be far away, know that our spirit and prayer are with you and your family: Our prayers of peace and the God’s promise. John 14:27 (Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid)

  4. To B. C.’s Mother, Children, Sisters, and Brother
    You continue to be in my prayers during this period of transition. Each of you are like family to me. I wish that circumstances would allow me to be with you on Monday. In the 1970s B. C. was my neighbor for years and he was a very good neighbor. God is ever present and He will be your peace as you move through this experience. I will be in touch.
