Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21:3 & 4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say " Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The Former things have passed away " I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.

To The Family,
As a volunteer minister I read obituary columns on a regular basis. No words however kindly meant, can sooth your pain away. We hope the love around you, memories, and heartfelt prayers of those who mourn with you, help you through today. God can supply a profound sense of peace and tranquility that actually surpasses human understanding. Truly He’s the One of True Tender Mercy.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
Kind Regards, The Sterling Family
