Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Lula Mae, you have my condolences in your loss. Jehovah God blessed Lula Mae with special mightiness, because Psalm 90:10 says in part, “The span of our life is 70 years, Or 80 if one is especially strong.” God’s promise of humans living forever will come true. It is impossible for God to lie (Titus 1:2)!
