Mrs. Johnson and Family, I am so sorry for the lost of your husband, father, grandfather and great grand father. It has been such a wonderful pleasure having you and your husband in our life. God blessed us with a wonderful neighbor and friend. He was so personable to everyone. We have fond memories of him walking up the street to the Giant dressed to kill with the cigar in his mouth always smiling and asking us how was my dad doing since we were my dad's caregivers. We would bump into him on the bus too and exchange greetings. He was such a family man, devoted christian and loving husband. We shall miss him but we are glad God brought him in our life. May the God of all comfort continue to hold you in his arms and embrace you!! I am glad we did have the little visits with you Mrs. Johnson followed with prayer prior to his illness.Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord they rest from their labor. Devoted neighbors since l965!!

Sincerely in Christ,
Jane J. Hawkins and Theresa M. Jones

Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with Mr. Charles, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21: 4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18 )knows the many tears you cry and he will sustain you if you let him. I was thinking of you and hoping that you can find comfort during this difficult time.
