    I am so sorry to hear of the death of one of my favorite friends…we shared many good times together at Calvary Baptist Church. I remember the Sunday School classes and the many discussions of our Sunday School lessons in the Faith Sunday School Class.
    She loved the Bible and was very knowledgeable of the words to help us in our daily living. She will be greatly missed here on earth but we can look forward to being with her in heaven.My prayers are with you,her family, at this time.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
