Private Condolence


Posted at 11:29am
Dear Johnson family, I read about the loss of your dear love one Ms Lillian and wanted to offer my sincere condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who promises that our deceased loved ones have a hope of a resurrection. This promise is found in the Bible at John 5:28-29, there are other resurrections that are recorded in the Bible they unquestionably build faith in a hope only Almighty God can provide. It's my sincere desire that the Bible can give you hope and strength you need to get from one day to the next. Again my sincere condolences, Rhonda
