    Dear Wendell, Nancy, and family... I am so very sorry to learn of your loss of Johnathan. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.

    My deepest condolences to Jonathan's mother and daughters upon his passing. May all your wonderful memories of him sustain you in this sorrow. The Bible says a son is an inheritance from God...the fruit of the womb a reward. God the originator of family bestows this blessing in order for all to experience happiness not sadness due to death. So, since he cares for you all and it was not his original purpose for any to die. God offer up his son Jesus Christ as a ransom so that when a love one is loss to death; there is a hope of the resurrection. This hope will help you to endure, find comfort in your grief, continue to rely on the almighty God for strength and faith. 1John 4:9,10, Isaiah 61:1,2 To further explore the resurrection hope and God's love for loss love ones look under Bible Teachings on

    Dear Nancy, Vanessa, Sabrina, Cheyenne, Leeanna, Sophia, Valerie, Windell, David and Linda, Kenny and all your loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am so sorry for your loss of Paul. Uncle Thomas, LaRaine and I met Paul shortly after he was born when we traveled from VA home to Wilmington one weekend. He was an adorable baby with a sweet smile. I remember the many trips we made home to visit with family. When Paul was about 10 months old, his brothers would carry him through Granny and Pa's house while they were playing. After Paul began to walk, if the boys and LaRaine went outside to play, Paul would stand in the kitchen at Granny's backdoor and cry until someone took him outside to play too! Easter of 1974 our family traveled from Florida to Wilmington to be with our families. We all had a picnic in Grandma Millie's backyard Saturday and after church on Sunday Grandma Millie had a n Easter Egg Hunt for her grandchildren. Paul was 5 and Melissa was 2. Windell, David, Kenny and LaRaine all were given "orders from grandma's headquarters" to let Paul and Melissa have a fair chance to find eggs. I remember Paul laughing and grinning from ear to ear. He had so much fun. Vanessa and Sabrina, when you very small, Uncle Thomas and I visited you and your family. You lived in Long Leaf Village. Your daddy was so proud of you two. Cheyenne, we got to meet you at your Grandma Nancy's house when you were very young. Your daddy was proud of all his daughters and loved you very much. Jesus said in Matthew 28:20, "And lo, I am with you always." He is with us in the good times and the most difficult sorrowful times. He loves you all. My love and Prayers, Aunt Faye.
