Condolence Messages

  1. We can’t begin to imagine what you are feeling, but please let us share our heartfelt condolences. While words failed to capture the pain of losing a loved one. God sees everything, he hears the grounds of the oppressed and receives the heart of the crushed Isaiah 57:15. May God sustain you at this time of great loss.

  2. Sharon Wyche Johnson and Helen Wyche

    Our condolences, to the family of
    Clarence Towns.

  3. I’m sorry for your loss Tonya. Geese

  4. To the family of Clarence, you have my condolences in your loss. God’s original purpose was for the human family to become many, to fill the earth, and to live forever upon it! God warned that death would enter into the world as a consequence for Adam’s disobedience (Romans 5:12). However, because of his undeserved loving kindness, he allowed his son Jesus to die to reverse the effects of sin. May you have faith in his promise of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 24:15)
