    Devora and Family, May the Peace and Comfort of GOD sustain you. GOD is your Comforter and HE will not leave you comfortless. “Joe Still Lives.” Jesus says it best, “Come all who labor and are heavy burden, for I will give you rest.”

    GOD saw him getting tired,
    And a cure was not to be.
    So He wrapped His arms around him,
    And said, “Come with Me.”
    With tearful eyes you watched him,
    And saw him pass away.
    Although you loved him dearly,
    You could not make him stay.
    A broken heart stopped beating.
    Hard working hands at rest.
    GOD broke your heart to prove to you
    He only takes the best.

    Stay Blessed and Remain Encouraged! Much Love!

Leave Your Condolence
