To The Family,
When God's Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, walked the earth he performed thousands of miracles. Perhaps the greatest of these was that of bringing the dead back to life.(Luke 7:11-15; John 11:43-44)) As he sits on his throne in heaven, Jesus still has this God-given power to resurrect the dead and he has promised to do so in the very near future. (John 11:25) These statements and facts concerning Jesus provides us with an assured hope that our deceased loved ones will be brought back to life with the prospect of living forever. (John 3:16) Please accept my deepest thoughts of sympathy in the passing of Ms. Cynthia Lorene (Barnes) Crowe.

Mr. Terry, a volunteer minister

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 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 anymore. The Former things have passed away “I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.
