  3. Irish J. Richardson

    To the Mullins family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) It is not God’s purpose originally for mankind to grow old, get sick and die. To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more.

    A true angel departed with the passing of this beautiful soul. I have known Mrs. Mullins for the last 10 to 15 years and she was one of the most quality individuals I have ever met. I know she was met with open arms by God and family.
