    Charles I will miss you. I often thought if one was to lookup friend in the dictionary. It would describe you. May God bless Mary and the rest of your family. I will keep you in my prayers always. Rest in peace my friend.

    Mary, accept our sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 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

    To my dear brother Johnny and family...We know that mere words cannot adequately express condolences to all of you. But remember that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the Healer of all broken hearts and He will heal yours because of His deep and abiding love for each of you. Continue to look to Him as He lovingly walk with you every step of the way through this journey. Sending all our love and heartfelt prayers, Bishop Arnell I. Dunn and the Evangel Baptist Church family, Knightdale, N.C.

    To Johnny and Family... Losing a loved one is so heartbreaking, and there's nothing on earth that can suddenly take away the pain and sadness. But remember God's Word of promise, " be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord..." And as Jesus Christ has promised, your dad, husband, grandfather, etc. is now resting in the loving arms of his Lord and Savior. Until then, continue to seek Him for comfort, peace and strength today and in the coming days. Also, please know that we are here for you. Love to all, Gamel and Sheila Spence
