Memories Timeline


  1. I want to send my condolences to the family and friends of Paul. Having to deal with the loss of a love one is something that we never want to experience. But, knowing that we can receive comfort from God ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4) we can rest assure that he will guide us through these grievous times.

  2. Please accept my condolences for your loss. May the many memories of happy times together bring you smiles and may the wonderful promise found in the Bible at Acts 24:15 bring you hope and peace.
