Past Comments


My husband and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Celesta. Although we never had to opportunity to meet her personally we wanted to share with you comfort from Gods word found in John. 5:28,29. Here we are given the wonderful hope of the resurrection of our dear loved ones, here on earth just as Lazarus was in John 11. Have comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father expresses his loving compassion for us when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) Share your memories with those who surround you at this time, for memories shared are memories cherished, may they bring you peace and comfort in your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
