    To the Taylor Family, Church Family and Friends: Thanking and Praising God for this wonderful man of God. Who was a kind and caring man, most of all he was a servant for Jesus Christ. Pastor Taylor enjoyed serving others. There's a place of honor for those who voluntarily set themselves aside to attend to other's needs. And that was Pastor Taylor, always attending to others' needs. "Rest on Pastor Taylor" To the Taylor Family, Church Family and Friends may you hold on to God's unchanging hand for this hour and for the days ahead. Shirley McCain New Cedar Grove Baptist Church

    Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear love one. A scripture that has given me much comfort is Revelation 21:4 which promises that one day death will be no more. I hope this scripture brings comfort to your family during this difficult time.

    We're so sorry about your loss. Please find comfort from the words found at 1 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "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" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
