Condolence Messages

  1. To the family, I offer My Sincerest Condolences.
    Growing Up in the same neighborhood, It’s very Hard to say Goodbye to a Good friend, more like Family. I understand that His work here was Done. He has a New Home, and Better Job!… To Watch over All of Us left behind! Fly High Tony, Fly High!!

  2. That smile……..what can I say, he will always be in our hearts and minds……the memories will flood our minds forever. I will never forget how he would walk in the front door and say where’s the smoothies sis….❤️ He was definitely one of a kind and could lighten your spirits in your darkest hour. I pray for the family may God wrap his arms around them and fill them with peace and understanding during this time.
    He will always have a special place in my heart.

  3. We can’t begin to imagine what you are feeling, but please let us share our deepest sympathy. May the God of comfort be with you during this sad occasion and may his loving words at John 6:40 console your hearts. Thoughts of peace.

  4. I’m sending my sincere condolences to the Roberson family and friends. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face. Jesus said, did, and promised something that gives us comfort and hope. In the Bible at John 11:11-14, Jesus likened death to sleep. This comfort us in two ways: 1) we are assured by those words that our loved ones are not suffering or in pain. 2) If a person is just sleeping, he will wake up! Notice what Jesus does next at John 11:43-44, this is amazing! If you would like to know more details about this, please download a free copy of the brochure Good News from God @ and read lesson 6 along with the Bible.

    To the Roberson family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.
