Condolence Messages

  1. With a heavy heart I say first of all I LOVE YOU to some of the most important people in my life. Family isn’t always who you see everyday. It’s who you here in your day to day decisions and happenings. In the Times of great success and great failure. You’ve all taught me so much about love and life, but most of all in death everyone of you have been saints. I am a man and the man that exists because of this particular family and our love,laughs,and loss. Not one word I say can make the road shorter but at least know we’re not alone on the journey.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of precious Marissa. Cherish all the beautiful memories of her and keep those forever in your heart.

    My heart cries out for you…I’m truly sorry for your loss. My love, thoughts, & prayers are with you during this time of grievance.

    A mother should never have to bury her child. God will carry you through this difficult time Michelle. May God meet every need and heal every broken heart as time passes. My condolences and prayers are with you.

  5. To the family of Marissa, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. It hurts my heart when a young person dies prematurely. At 1 Corinthians 15:26 it tells us, “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” May you rely on God’s promise to eliminate the enemy death forever!

    I love you all. Stay strong and ground in the word of our Lord. XOXOXO

    Dear family we are sorry to hear about your loss death is difficult for family and friends however the Bible holds out hope for our deceased love ones found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 and verses 28 and 29. Why not read these scriptures in your personal copy of the Bible.

    Peacefully Yours

    To the families of Marissa and Anduray, I send my deep condolences to both sides of families. I went to school with both and are friends with both. This hurts to see somebody so graceful and peaceful leave this wicked world, and to see a friend hurt over this passing is tragic once more. I’m praying for both families in the this time of grief.

    To: The Entire Family of Sis. Marissa Parks,

    Praise the Lord! When we heard about the passing of your precious daughter, mother,
    niece and friend, we had to respond even if only in this small way. You must know that
    because of her passing, our hearts too are broken, but not as those who have no hope.

    While words cannot express the grief that we share with you, nor the love we offer you,
    we did want with these few lines to express to you our support as you go through these
    difficult days.

    Therefore, on behalf of myself, my wife and the entire Faith Ministries Church Family, I
    would like to express the heartfelt sympathy we share with you. As you pass through this
    valley of the shadow of death, remember, God is with you!

    It is during such times as these that we draw upon our faith, stand upon our scriptures
    and rely upon our God. There is no question that in this and through this, God will keep
    you, comfort you and sustain you. You and your family are forever in our prayers.

    Yours in Christ,
    Dr. C. Dexter Wise III
    Dr. Shirley D. Wise and the Entire Faith Ministries Church Family
