  3. To The Obey Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death was never God’s original plan for us and he has promised to eliminate death and sickness forever. Revelations chapter 21 verse 4. Then soon, the words Jesus spoke regarding the resurrection in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 will allow us the opportunity to welcome back our loves ones and live on a paradise earth forever with our loved ones. Psalms chapter 37 verse 29. This was Jehovah’s original plan for us.
    I hope that these scriptures bring hope and comfort to you.


  4. Praying that God will give you peace during this time of your loss. Remembering your family in prayer.

  5. I’m so very sorry for your loss and will keep you all lifted up in prayer.

    Many years ago Zaky was in my first grade class. I remember him as a bright,
    lively, beautiful young man. I am sure he was loved by many. I have remembered
    him all these years. You were blessed to have had him in your lives all these years.

  8. My condolence to the family, “At that time the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped .At that time the lame will leap like the deer , and the tongue of the speechless will shout for joy .For waters will burst forth in the wilderness,and streams in the desert plain”.Isaiah 35:5,6.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Zack. I just heard of the news this evening through a mutual friend. I was friends with he and his brothers “back in the day”. I hadn’t seen him for many years, but will still miss him dearly. I always thought very highly of Zack. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
