You get use to seeing people and so first sittinging in the men's corner on Sunday morning than sitting behind Bunny, than knowing he is sitting with the Lord. Our salvation is with the Lord. Prayers to the family and all who loved Big C and may you all find comfort in knowing he is sitting with the Lord. Hallelujah

Very sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. May you and your family gain comfort from the words at Revelation 21:3, 4. “The tent of God is with mankind. . . And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

My condolence to the family & friends of Richard Jones, Sr. No doubt he will be fondly remembered. As you cherish the many memories, reflect on the time when death will be a condition of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is a promise made by our loving God Jehovah & Jesus Christ guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19). May God’s word, the thoughts & prayers of others, & the many fond memories comfort you each day, as we await the fulfillment of His promises! (Joshua 23:14)

"To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". May Jesus our God of comfort in the flesh richly bless you all as you remember and celebrate Richard's life legacy and his homegoing to Heaven. He will not be forgotten in the hearts of all who knew him. has been a valuable resource and we thoughtfully share. 'Precious Lord, take my hand...lead me home'. A. Pettiford Casey
