    To the family of Mr. Clifford Ponder, I am so sorry to hear that your loved one has passed. You have my deepest sympathy and condolences. May you find comfort and peace from God's word the Bible, it contains information that can help us in our times of pain and sorrow. For example at John 5:28,29, it says that there will be a resurrection of our dear loved ones and we will be able to see them again alive right here on this earth and they will be in good health in both body and mind. I played basketball with "Popeye" in the ninth grade at Carver Jr. High. Along with, L. Anderson,Frog,Eugene Barber and Bull Time,Shine and John I. Davis. If I can remember all these people you know God can and will remember "Popeye". May you continue to find comfort from God's word. for more information see the website www org or contact me at P. O. Box 367, McComb, Ms. 39649
