Condolence Messages

  1. As a whisper of love in the silence and a gentle touch of promise to the heart; Mrs Scipio will continue to be a “light” to others on this journey called life. Deepest sympathy from Denise Thompson and family

  2. To The Scipio Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death is an enemy to us all at any age. Even God himself considers death to be an enemy and he has promised through his word the bible to eliminate death along with sickness and pain forever in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Soon, the words Jesus spoke regarding the resurrection in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 which reads,” All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,” will take place and allow us the opportunity to welcome back our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death, to awaken to a paradise earth and to live forever upon it. Psalms 37 verse 29. What a happy time that will be. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a real hope for the future.
