Condolence Messages

  1. To the Malone family, you have my condolences in your loss. Death was never God’s purpose for the human family! He put Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden (paradise) to care for and to extend it earth wide, have many children, and to fill the earth. (Genesis 1:28) They were to live forever as long as they were obedient, which they were not! (Genesis 2:15-17). Very soon, God will reverse the effects of inherited sin and will eliminate death forever! (Isaiah 25:8
