    Our love thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. As always, we are blown away by your amazing spirit and strength. Continue in the encouragement of the word of the Lord - Thessalonians 4:13-14 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. Love, Pastor Strayhorn and your United Worship Family

    To Kim, Keith and Family: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and condolences. I had many laughs with Franc when we worked together at TES. She was a wonderful person to work with. We would always joke about "making that little piece of change" and that laugh would always sustain us through the month. Rest in knowing that should was true to all she did and all who knew. She will be sorely missed but never forgotten be me and all who met her.

    Sampson family, “Love is the most healing force in the world; nothing goes deeper than Love. It heals not only the Body, not only the Mind, but also the soul.” Because of the Love Sister Sampson exemplified to the world, she was a healer to all who came in contact with her! My children, Lauren Best Burford & Michael Best, and I have been blessed to have received her love, guidance and prayers throughout the years, and are hearts are heavy for you all at this time. Please accept our deepest and most heartfelt condolences at this time.

    We're so sorry to hear you are suffering the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” 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 provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
