  1. To: The Burgess-Lofton Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. Jesus said: At John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognises the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.
    May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.

  2. To The Burgess-Lofton Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to offer my condolences to the family. Death is a real enemy to us all at any age. Even God considers death an enemy and he has promised through his word the bible to eliminate death along with pain and sickness forever in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Soon, the resurrection that Jesus spoke of 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 live on a paradise earth forever. Psalms 37 verse 29. May these promises from the bible bring you a measure of comfort now and a real hope of seeing your loved one again soon.

  3. I am so very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories of him and God’s promise at John 5: 28,29 which says we have the hope of seeing our love ones again

    Ms. Reba was a beautiful woman. My memories of her at church were always pleasant. She served as a communion steward with my mother and the Inspirational choir always enjoyed visiting with her and singing in her home. God has definitely taken a loving angel from us.
