Guest Book

Rest in eternal peace Evelyn, in Heaven with the Lord and your son.

Evelyn was a very special person in our lives. Our family always considered her a part of our family as she was always there for any family function that we had. She left behind so many memories that each of us will have the rest of our lives. When Pastor Wade shared with us that she accepted the Lord as her savior just days before she left this world, we knew that the angels in heaven was celebrating that day. RIP Evelyn. You will certainly be missed.

The death of someone you love is one of life’s greatest tragedies. Just knowing that what you’re feeling is not uncommon can be reassuring in itself. In addition, expressing, not repressing, your feelings can also help.  “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.”​—John 5:28, 29
