We were so sorry to hear about J.W. We are praying that God will comfort you and give you His strength during this time. We were looking at the pictures of J.W. and Eddie recently and remembering his and Hazel's visits out to Texas."

Please accept our sympathy for the loss of Mr. White. Words cannot take away the pain you feel, but knowing that others are thinking of you can be a source of strength. May you be comforted in knowing that God promises to reunite us with our deceased loved ones again in the very near future. (John 5:28, 29)"
