  1. Ms Sue,
    Rest in Heaven. I spoke with you 2 weeks prior to this sad occasion and we talked about everything from back in the day. You have been an inspiration to me and others. Through your wisdom and teachings have helped me to accomplish a lot of things in my life. You were always there for me and Tyrone no matter what the problem. You were my ROCK and I will miss you dearly.

    May God bless the Oxner Family.

    I was very sorry to read the notice in Sunday's paper of Sue's passing. For many years my late husband, Ed Pickering, helped with the Thanksgiving Dinner, supplying prepared squash and serving the meal. Springfield has lost a devoted civil servant. May the Lord be with you all. Evalind Pickering, Springfield, Ohio

  3. To the Family.

    I am sorry for the lost of your family member and dear friend. I have an encouraging message that I would like to share with you from God’s Word the Bible.

    Like many people we all want to live and enjoy life with the ones we have lost to this aged-old-enemy death. Sadly, though because of health issues, injustice, crimes and old age we have to suffer the pain when ones fall asleep in death.

    In the Bible at John 5:28,29 Christ Jesus states that all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear his voice and come out. These ones according to Psalm 37:11 will be resurrected right here on the earth.

    The Bible also gives us comfort and hope at Revelation 21:3-5 which assures us that the day is soon to come in which our Heavenly Father is going to wipe away the tears of sorrow from our eyes forever and death will be no more.

    I hope that after reading this that it will be of comfort to each of you.

  4. FiFi and Carlos,

    We were saddened to hear of the loss of your dear Mother. Your Mother was always kind and sweet to all of us. May you take comfort in knowing that an Angel will always be watching over you. May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared, comfort you now and in the days ahead.
