    The passing of your love one Henrietta is a daunting experience for your family. However, it was not God’s orginal purpose for anyone die. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah sent his son Jesus who gave his life in order that Henrietta may have the hope in a resurrection. Acts 24:15 stated, “there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at this time God will remember Henrietta and bring her back. Therefore, draw close to the god of all comfort, Jehovah who will comfort you during this time sorrow. (go to for more info)

    To the Gill & Robertson families: I met Henrietta many years ago at her home on Blain; she was very nice and cordial. Two of her brothers; Roosevelt and Bobby were my schoolmates at William Penn High School. Last but not least, I met one of her sons, Tony at Shiloh Baptist Church in W-S. We were on the finance committee together until he moved his membership. All of you have something quite essential in common; LOVE and CHRIST in your hearts for one another. May our Heavenly Father continue to guide you in patience and understanding for all mankind. Prayerfully, Jeannette Ferguson Porter

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." 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. ~~~You also are cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible. Saturday March 31st, 2018 at 7:30 pm. Location : Radisson Hotel, 135 S Main St., High Point, NC 27260

    God is the Creator of life. The Bible calls Jehovah God "the source of life" (Psalm 36:9; Acts 17:24,25) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Please visit our website at There you will fond out more about Jehovah's plans for obedient mankind.

    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11; God "Is very tender in affection (very compassionate) and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
