Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by J Bryant on 29th January 2018

"To the family,
My condolences to the loss of your love one. I know it is hard to deal with this grief-stricken pain. But God, whose name is Jehovah, stated in his word the Bible that “death will be no more”. (Psalms 83:18, 1 Timothy 3:16, Revelation 21:4). Also, his son, Jesus Christ, assured us at John 5:28,29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment”. So, rest assured, you will be able to see your love one again.
I’ve attached a link to one of our tracts from our website, The tract asks this question, “Can the Dead Really Live Again?” It has wonderful scriptural encouragement that will help from God’s word.
Again, my sincerest condolences,
J. Bryant"

"James, Charlene, and Ashley,
I am saddened to hear of the death of Amy. I remember Amy and Ashley as kindergarten students in class. Amy as well as Ashley were smart, good students and you were supportive parents. I was able to meet Savannah at Walmart last year with grandma and Auntie Ashley. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I pray that God will send comfort to you during this most difficult time. I will never forget you all"

"Dear Jimmy and Charlene,
Someone gave me this poem when my late husband and I lost our son. You are in my prayers.I remember when we were growing up we all made plans for our  future. We never thought it would include releasing a child into the LORD'S hands.You are in my prayers.
Much Love,
Sandy Cook Willis(Mary Cook's daughter/Erin and Robyn Womble's Mama)

It’s my very favorite place.
I feel closer to you there.
We rock the hours away.
Me and your Teddy Bear

The rocking chair is squeaking,
as rocking chairs will do.
I pretend the one I’m holding
isn’t Teddy Bear, but you.

I miss your little chubby cheeks.
They were so fun to kiss.
Cuddling you, and hearing you goo
are among the things I miss.

Precious memories of you linger.
My child I miss you so.
I hope one day my heart will heal.
It’s hard to let you go.

When in time God calls me home
to be with you up there;
With joy I’ll hold you in my arms
instead of Teddy Bear."
