  1. South High Alumni Association

    The South High School Alumni Association and its Board of Directors want to express our sympathy and send condolences at the death of your loved one. Our entire South High School family is diminished by his passing.

  2. Sending our deepest condolences to the family.
    From the Person Family

  3. My condolence to the family.  Losing a loved one to death is the hardest pain to endure. Although it doesn’t seem like it now, we can draw comfort from the Bible account of the resurrection of Jesus’  friend, Lazarus, recorded at John 11:11-14. Just as Jesus awakened Lazarus, one day you too will see your loved one again as promised at John 5:28, 29, Psalm 37:11,29 & Rev. 21:3,4. Until that day comes it is my hope you can draw comfort from Jeremiah 29:11, 12. There Jehovah God says when we pray to him he will listen.

  4. To The Pettway Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family, Death is a real enemy to us all at any age. Even God considers death to be an enemy and he has promised through his word the bible to eliminate death along with pain and sickness forever in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Soon, the resurrection that Jesus spoke of in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads,” All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” will take place and allow us the opportunity to welcome back our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, to awaken to a paradise earth and live forever upon it. Psalms 37 verse 29. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a real hope for the future.
