Those we Love don't go away. They walk beside us everyday. Unseen, Unheard, but always near. Still Loved, Still Missed and very dear. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Loves leaves a memory no one can steal. Rest on Charlene you fought a Good Fight. Now you are resting in the arms of Jesus. Clayton, Charles, Minnie, and Darlene and the rest of the family may you find comfort in God word during this difficult time. Charlene will surely be missed off of Maiden Lane.

I'm so sorry to have read of loss.

When our loved ones fall asleep in death, it grieves our heart.

The Bible has beautiful and comforting words to help us with our loss. Psalm 147:3 says: “He (God) Heals the brokenhearted: He binds up their wounds. Revelation 21:4 expresses a wonderful hope for the future. It says: “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry he anymore. “
May these scriptures provide comfort for you now and in the days ahead.
