    IT WAS THAT WALK It was the talk, no no no, it was that walk. The day I met you it wasn’t what you said, but it was that walk. As we introduced ourselves, and you started to walk away, I knew right then you were a lady of poise and class. I’m sorry I’m not there to say my goodbyes, but I want to say as you take your wings and rest from your walk… know that heaven waits, and no you’re not late, because you were preparing in your walk for heaven’s gates. For years you walked the streets of tar, you earned your wings and will walk the streets of gold. Rest on sweet soul rest on. Commissioner Melissa Hughes

    It grieves us to hear about your loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 34:18. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is hope found in God's Word the Bible at Acts 24:15 where it says "There is going to be a resurrection." How comforting to know that God has given us a real hope of seeing our loved ones again that have passed away. I send my condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Ates.

    I love you so much Grammy and I miss you. I wish I had more time with you but I’m glad I was able to visit you and got the chance to have one last dinner with you. You’re in a better place now resting peacefully in heaven. Say hi to my dad for me and tell him I love and miss him. Now I have two angels watching over me.

    My dear Grammy, I can't believe you have transitioned on. My heart hurts but I know that you are in a better place. I will cherish the quality time we spent together when I came over after school before I had to go to work and we will watch soap operas and talk about my day at school and before I left you always asked when I'm coming back. I love you and will miss you. Get your rest. Love your granddaughter Quita
