Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven; a time to be born and a time to die
Mama, what you have given me down through the years, I will always share with the family; prayer. You’ve introduced at an early age to us that Jesus Christ the most important thing in life.
Your spirit will forever be alive, and the memories cherished. How can I express a mother’s, true love? I miss you already, my love for you is forevermore mama.
Daughter and Deaconess

On the Other Side of Death
Death is a GATEWAY we all must pass through To reach that Fair Land where the soul’s born anew, For man’s born to die and his sojourn on earth Is s short span of years beginning with birth. . . And like pilgrims we wander until death takes our hand And we start on our journey to God’s Promised Land A place where we’ll find no suffering nor tears, Where TIME is not counted by days, months or years. . . And in this Fair City that God has prepared Are unending joys to be happily shared With all of our loved ones who patiently wait On Death’s Other Side to open “THE GATE”
