    My sincere condolences to the family I am sorry for your loss of your dear love one. However, the Bible offers us a real hope for the future in Revelation 21:4 which states "He will wipe out every tear from there eyes and death will be know more". How wonderful that will be, not seeing our love ones passing away in death. Also Acts 24:15 which says" there is going to be a resurrections of the righteous and unrighteous. This is truly a wonderful blessing to look forward too. I hope that in reading this scripture you and your family find comfort

    To the Alston Family: I am sorry about the lost of your dear loved one. May the memories of Mr. Alston help to ease your pain of sorrow. Please remember that Mr. Alston is not suffering but is asleep in death waiting to hear Jesus voice, John 5: 28 & 29. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Love,
