    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to 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.

    My condolences to the Searcy family. I know this is a difficult time for the family and I pray God comforts the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of Christopher comfort his family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Isaiah 25:8 "He (GOD) will swallow up death forever; and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." May you all have peace of mind during this difficult time.

    My deepest Condolences to Christine Dalton and Family. Chris was my neighbor for 10 years. I would see and talk to him almost on a daily basis. He would check on me if he hadn't seen me in a couple of day and I would do the same with him. He was a great neighbor, and kept an immaculate yard. I will sorely miss him. Still in disbelief. I'm here if there is anything I can assist you with. Love you!
