Condolence Messages

  1. Sandra Campbell

    To The Palmer Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences. Death is our enemy and God has promised though his word the bible in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4, to eliminate death along with pain and sickness forever. Our hope is in 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.” For more comforting words during this time, please go to
