Williams Family
   Posted Mon September 16, 2013
Please accept our heartfelt condolences for all in the family. It is our prayer that God will bring comfort to you all now, and during the times ahead. The Bible promises that Jehovah God, (Psalms 83: 18), will bring an end to sickness and death, (Revelation 21:3, 4). Jesus assures us of that at (John 5: 28,29)… He will call and our loved ones who have passed will answer… You can see them again. There will be no more mourning, outcry, or pain… Truly a paradise the way Jehovah God and Jesus Christ originally intended it to be (Psalms 37: 29)… May these words bring true peace and comfort to the family during this time of your loss.
