As I read the warm and compassionate words about my spiritual sister, no doubt she left family and friends memories to comfort and console you today and in the days ahead. The scripture say "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." My sincere condolences to family and friends.

Sabrina, I love you and you just don’t know how hard this is. The mix of emotions I’m feeling to have lost my best friend. You are the best thing that ever happened for me, I am forever thankful for the time we had. You didn’t die alone like you were afraid of so many times. I was there, by your side. You had family and friends there, watching as you kept fighting. I am thankful that you do t have to endure all the troubles, anxiety and stresses of this old world. No one can hurt you any more. I love you with all my heart and soul, we were truly one flesh, and were blessed that Jehovah provided the means for us to be married, it was the best years of my life, and I look forward to the day when you are made new in Jehovahs paradise earth, I will be waiting for you. You owe me eternity together, and I meant it! Goodbye for now, rest, and I’ll see you soon.

Her Smile

Shared by Mark Merithew on August 22, 2022
From the time she was born to the time we started talking, she was always ashamed of her front teeth gap.  She had a crush on me and I still don’t know why, but she smiled at me one day at the hall at a meeting, and I thought it was the most beautiful smile I had ever seen.  Her beautiful brown eyes glimmered in the light and her face was turning pink, I caught that smile and was instantly twitterpated.  We talked more and we became best of friends.  
Now you might ask, how can someone so young have anything in common with someone so old?  Well, her parents were best friends with my parents, her dad married my parents.  I grew up with her family.  She was raised by the same generation, watched the same shows, liked some of the same music, laughed at the same corny jokes.  
I had never thought of marrying a girl so young, but I told everyone over the years what I was looking for.  I wanted to marry my best friend, no matter what she looked like, or other social norms in choosing a mate.  So at 19, we got married.  January 27th, 2017.  We laughed how it all happened.  Our person marrying us was a blind woman and her girlfriend, both in their late 60’s maybe early 70’s.  We giggled the whole time because we just were overwhelmed with emotion and the comedy of it.  We were married up by the aviary for predator birds at the Anniston Museum of Natural Sciences.  Nothing fancy, nothing glamorous, just simple.  It’s another thing I loved about her, she didn’t marry for looks, money, or anything like that, she married because she loved me.  There I saw that smile and I promised Jehovah and everyone including her, that I would do anything in my power and with God’s help to take care of her, to love her forever and always, for eternity.  She will be missed, but she will always be loved.  I hope to see your smile again soon
