    Today is both a sad day and happy day, sad because of the loss that has occurred but happy because John has reached his final destination in life and is now united with our Lord and Savior. Our condolences to you and the Green family.

  2. To: The Green Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort from God’s Word the Bible. At Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from the earth. Jehovah himself has spoken it.
    We are confidence in Jehovah’s promises, they will come true and be fulfilled. May the hope of this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead. Please visit
