  1. So sorry for your loss. Please draw comfort from Revelations 21:3&4. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We have such a beautiful promise from god that we look forward to.

  2. Saddened by the passing away of Uncle Stan. He leaves behind a treasure chest of memories. May he rest in our Lord’s arms. Condolences to the bereaved members. May the beautiful memories of all your good times, ease the sadness of your loss. In sympathy… Braganza’s chembur(tootie Elaine, esmy, Elsa, Elma, Edwin n their mom, Agnes.)
