    I am so sorry for your loss, however, I have found comfort from the Scriptures that gives us hope for our deceased loved ones. Revelation 21:4 says; And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his 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.

    This sends condolences to the Wallace family at the loss of Sharon Lavon. Her loss leaves a void in my heart because she was one of my former students when I worked in Talladega in the 1960s. She joins the list of several of my former students who have gone on to their reward. Each obituary saddens me because they were so much a part of my life. My condolences to all of the Wallace children whom I taught and the supportive parents who helped me to grow as a professional school teacher.

    My sympathy to the Wallace/Stennis family. Few things cause more pain and heartache than the death of a loved one. Thankfully the Bible repeatedly speaks about a time in the future when those in the grave will be brought back to life.
