    We were deeply saddened by the news of Patricia’s passing. Fond memories came to mind of us playing together on the Ray Warren Homes Playground. Patricia was a great player on the Ray Warren Homes Softball Team. She was short and small but no one could have a better softball team back catcher. We want to express our sympathy and let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Mary, Delores and Rhonda Graves

    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.

    My Prayers are with the family, as I leave you with this comforting scripture.2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4 (3) Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, (4) who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It is always painful to lose a loved one. I too have lost many dear ones to death. In the Lord’s prayer. Jesus says at Matthew chapter 6, verse 10: ‘Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.’ I find this comforting because nowhere in the Bible is sickness or death mentioned as occurring in heaven; hence, I look forward to seeing God’s will for the earth to be carried out just as it is in heaven. Then we can be reunited with our loved, and enjoy life on earth forever as Almighty God Jehovah purposed from the beginning. [Psalm 37:29] I sincerely hope that these words serve as some comfort to you at this time.
