    The loss of a loved one is a very sad thing, I am so sorry for your loss. Thanks to our loving God, Jehovah, we have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. The bible promises, "Death will be no more" (Revelation 21:4) It also assures us that our loved ones will be resurrected to a paradise earth. (John 5: 28, 29) May you be comforted by this wonderful hope.

    To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) promise that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." Read John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Learn more about Jesus Christ and how he will make God's wonderful promises come true at May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    Dwynell always had a kind spirit, even as a kid. Always laid back, always cool and always wearing some fresh kicks. He let his light shine everywhere he went and it was easy to see, he had a good heart. Rest on my cousin, you will definitely be missed. R.I.H. Love you always, Suzette and family.

    I only conversed with your husband a few time and found him to be a dedicated and wonderful individual. He coached my Godson, Jonathan Robinson and I know he was a big influence on Johnny. I thank him for being that inspiration to all the young men that attended IBALL. Coach Katrina my deepest sympathy goes out to you. Know that if you need me, I will be available. May God keep you and bring comfort to you. Rest in His love. Love always! Katie

    My deepest sympathy, to the Mitchell family. Losing a love one to death is very painful for the family and friends. The Bible at I Corinthians 15.:26 gives us hope that very soon this enemy death will be gone forever. May these few words comfort you during your time of bereavement.
