    Dear Arrington family, I send you my sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear loved one Shirley. Losing someone we love in death is a difficult event to endure. God's Word has provided a comforting hope for the future, for our loved ones whom we have loss in death. John 5:28,29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. This reunion will take place in a beautiful Paradise on earth, where we'll be able to fully experience the words "death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4;Psalm 37:11,29)

    To The Family, May you have peace and comfort during this most grievous time. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 refers to death as the, "last enemy." Almighty God is going to eliminate this enemy in the future. That same scripture says, it is going to be destroyed forever .What a wonderful future blessing when death is going forever. May you continue to have peace and comfort during this most difficult time.

    My heart goes out to the family over the loss of Mrs. Arrington. During these difficult days, please know that the God of all comfort understands your pain and sorrow and has sent His son Christ Jesus to bind up the brokenhearted and comfort all who mourn. (Isaiah 61:1, 2) Understanding the wonderful promise found in God’s Word the Bible brings real comfort because it gives hope for our loved ones who are now restfully sleeping in peace. (John 6:40; 1 Thessalonians 4:14; Revelation 21:3, 4) My deepest condolences, loving thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with you.

    What a privilege and an honor it was for me all these years to be loved & cared about as genuinely & consistently as Mother Arrington did, especially in the absence of my own Mother who's resting in peace. I delight in sharing how blessed I have been in the warm & sometimes funny presence, as well as the wonderfully spiritual moments I got to enjoy with Mother Arrington. She was a phenomenal woman! May the peace of God, who is your source of strength, peace & joy, guard your hearts through Christ Jesus! ✝️ Ms
