    Sincere condolences to the family. May you find the words at Revelation 21:3 and 4 comforting, knowing that in the very near future God's promises regarding pain and suffering will be gone. Respectfully,

    THE CHARGE I am a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. For my past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, cheap talking, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals. I no longer need prominence, prosperity, positions, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. For now I love by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, uplifted by prayer I labor with power. My faith is set, my gait is fast, and my goal is heaven, My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, and my guide reliable. My mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate with the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, let up, shut up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go until He comes, give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He stops me. Then when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me, for my banner will be clear! From The Family of Elizabeth Bynum, We send Our Condolences to the Gregory Family.

    I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to such scriptures as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Revelations 21:3-5] which says that Jehovah God will wipe away every tear from own eyes, and [Isaiah 25:8] says that God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.
