    Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. Wisdom that we can still recall. These are the things that we will cherish forever. May the family continue to look to Almighty God for comfort during this most stressful time since "He is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18. My condolence to you

    To my family and friends...its such a hard thing to face another death in our family. I never got to know my aunt Dorothy well. But I am sure that anyone who was born to Sarah Stokes, was a loving and kind person. My grandmother taught her all of her children to be the kind of person she was, with kind qualities that touch the hearts of many in whom they contact. I will be keeping the Stokes family in my many prayers for weeks to come...praying that we all will recover from another loss to our family..Jude 2

    Psalm 31:24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. For God will never forsake you during this time of sorrow. So weep if you must, and let your eyes overflow with tears. Just remember, God is just a whisper away. Let him be your comfort during this difficult time and he will restore your spirit through your hope in our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. May his Peace be upon you for now and forevermore! Elder Drummond

    We are saddened to know you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. You can find comfort in the words found in Psalms 34:18 which reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?
