  • I Pray God's healing for the family and love ones of Mrs. Jessie Walters.

  • My cousin Lois was such a pleasant, sweet and mild spirited person. I certainly enjoyed being in her company whenever possible during all these years. She will truly be missed. May Almighty God Jehovah bring the family much comfort. Because the Bible tells us at 2 Corinthians 1:4 That he is the God 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 him. And the Bible also tells us at Revelation 21:4 That God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. With much love, your cousin Lois Jackson
