I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find the promise from God that he will remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)

Roy was Raymond's best friend. They liked to prime tobacco side by side. He was a great person to work in tobacco. He would stay as long as he needed to get the work done. He was in great demand in the Berea community. He was good natured and comical. He has been missed by the Berea community. God be with you all !
