    Mrs. Waggett was such a special lady and neighbor. Dwanda and my prayers are for the family. Our neighborhood will not be same without her sitting outside and working in her yard. When we moved back to the old neighborhood she was the first to welcome us back and never failed to ask how my mother was doing as long as my mother was alive.. She will be missed dearly, but thanks to Jesus we will all be together again one day.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. Surely this is one of the most painful things we must face in life. May you find comfort in knowing that the compassionate God is near to those who cry out for his help. He is eager to comfort and soothe your broken heart and crushed spirit (Psalm 34:18). Jesus also promises that there will be a resurrection of the dead! (John 5:28, 29). And God assures us that even death will be no more (Revelation 21:3-5) I pray that you will find comfort and strength in God’s word at this most difficult time.
