    My sincere condolence for the passing of Ms. Christine, a dearly loved mother and grandmother. During these difficult times, I hope you find comfort in God’s promise at Revelation 21:4 to bring and end to death and suffering. And he will wipe out the tears from all eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain any more; the former things have passed away.”

    What a blessing Christine has been to Martha Rose and me over the many years we have known her. She has been so precious and loving to us and all those around her. We have enjoyed going to Salem Baptist Church with her; as well spending much time with her at McDonald’s dining with her. She truly loved Jesus Christ and all people surrounding her; both family, friends and strangers. She so often expressed love for her family. Her beautiful speech, encouraging words, and wonderful personality will always remain in our hearts. Christine, you are now in the hands of a loving God and I feel that he will keep all of His promises and reward you greatly. We look forward to being with you again!
