    To the family of Mr. Raymond Woods, my heartfelt prayers for your comfort and endurance during this grievous time. Grieving the loss of a loved one was not a part of God's original purpose. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.

    Raymond Woods Eulogy note Dear family although I join you from a distance we're grieving with heavy hearts together. As the youngest brother to Raymond growing up in another home we didn't spend as much quality family time together as we later in life expressed to each other that we both wish we could have . I feel Raymond's loss now more than ever since losing my mother and two Brothers up here and that was something I had not told him as it would not have been something I wanted on his mind either with what he was going through. We who are left behind in this world do pray together for our Raymond the husband and father , grandfather , great grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and confidant and may God bless us and keep us in his hand of mercy till will all meet again. brother now and forever, Louis Charles Woods

    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?
