Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Marcus, you have my condolences in the loss of your loved one. Death was never God’s purpose for the human family. He put Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden (paradise), and they were to extend it, to have many children, and to fill the earth (Genesis 1:28). They were to live forever as long as they did not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. If they did they would die (Genesis 2:15-17). Very soon, God will reverse the effects of sin by eliminating death forever and all of His promises will come true! – Isaiah 25:8

    So sorry for your loss..
    Peace be with you all..
