Job 14:13-15 John 6:40 He Will Call Life, like a mist, appears for just a day, Then disappears tomorrow. All that we are can quickly fade away, Replaced With tears and sorrow. If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made: (CHORUS) He will call; The dead will answer. They will live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we will live forever, As the work of his own hand. Friends of our God, though they may pass away, Will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God's memory stay, From death he will awaken. Then we'll come to see all that life can be: Paradise eternally. (CHORUS) He will call; The dead will answer. They will live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we will live forever, As the work of his own hand. If you would like to hear this song, please follow these steps. 1.

Tommy, Ginger, Maurice, David and families, I can only imagine all the wonderful memories y’all will be able to share having had your Mom for so long. (Mine passed at 41). Now, having seen her Saviour face to face, she’s enjoying a reunion with your Dad and sweet sister Linda❤️ Prayers for all of you in the days and weeks to come. Only God can give you the strength, comfort and peace that you will need.

Dearest Ginger, Maurice, Tommy,David and family, My parents and I extend our deepest sympathy to your family. You all were our family, too, for so many years, and Ms. Goldie treated us as her own. She has always been an amazing woman, and she will forever be in our hearts. We are praying that God will hold you all close in His arms and give you His peace and comfort as only He can do. Know that you are in our prayers. Much love to you all!

I am so saddened to hear about your precious mother! Just to know her,your dad, and family was always my pleasure! I always loved to be around them! They were super nice! I was also shocked to learn that Linda was not with you’al any longer! But she is with your mama &dad now! Since I moved out of town it’s hard for me to keep up with friends! I have loved your family for many years! Of course I meet them through Howard & Nancy ( my sister)! And went through school with Linda! I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around each of you and just remember, no more pain and suffering! They have a new body now! All of you have my deepest sympathy and are in my prayers! Muriel
