    My sincere condolences to my dearest best friend and her family at this difficult time in their lives. I am praying for comfort for all of you as God will be watching over you and holding your hands all the way through this journey. In Jesus name we pray. Love you Latonya

  3. To the family of Jimmy, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. Words can not express the pain we feel when a close family bond is broken by death! May your faith in God’s promises grow as his word at 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 says, “For he (Jesus) must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.”
