    Clementine DeBerry says:
    "If a man die, shall he live again?" asked the man Job long ago. (Job 14:14, King James Version) Perhaps you, too, have wondered about this. How would you feel if you knew that a reunion with your loved ones was possible right here on earth under the best of conditions? Well, the Bible makes the promise: "Your dead ones will live....They will rise up." And the Bible also says: "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it."-Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29. May you and your family find comfort, hope and encouragement from God's Word, the Bible.

    I met a man named Bill,who came from PA. hills. He came to meet his brotherand said "this place is like no other".He and John Cash decided to stay hoping music and carpentry would pave the way. At the time, little did both know, their time in Carolina they would both grow; grow to love the people, culture and beach. And people looking back, who thought they each, Cash and Bill, so different and unalike, but everyone soon learned their friendship was airtight. If you befriended one you also did the other and also Bill's brothers. Bill was a lover of the sea and everything Trekkie. He loved his weapons and swords and his books with all their words.He loved all kinds of books and the tourons endearing looks. He loved to make a touron giggle as this would cause him a hardy giggle!! In my life he played a large part, so large I cant't believe it's time for him to impart. We weren't finished, there is to much unfinished. I wish his family all the best, because we have laid one of the best to rest. Thank You for your friendship!!!!!!
