  9. To Brother Johnny and the Bryson/White Families–
    I was very sorry to hear about Sister Helen’s passing. There is no doubt that she will be missed, but I know that the Lord will sustain you. I know, too, that you have so many “Precious Memories” that you will hold dear to your heart and will be able to cherish forever. As Sister Helen bids farewell to this earthly home, we know that her spirit will live on. Let us be reminded of the scripture which reads, “Verily, Verily, I say unto you—He who believes in me shall have everlasting life”. (John 6:47). I pray that you will draw comfort as you remember God’s promise of the Resurrection, and may His Divine peace surround you and your family always. Sharing in your sorrow with deepest condolence.
