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.

Mr. Terry

To The Family,
I did not know Mr. Elbert Wilson Walkingstick, nor do I know his family, but at times like this I think of one of the many segments that made up God's original purpose for mankind, that of showing love for one another. (Leviticus 19:18) As a volunteer minister I read obituaries columns on a regular basis. My goal is to make an earnest effort to comfort the surviving family members during their grieving period. No words will ever take the pain of losing a loved one in death. But I pray that God will hold each of you in his loving arms and bring you comfort. Please keep in mind: "God is for us a refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest thoughts of sympathy.

Mr. Terry
