  1. So sorry to hear this. Her pain is now ended and we are so thankful she is in the arms of the Lord. We are praying for all you family members.

  2. May God wrap his loving arms around the family at this time.My thoughts and prayers are with you.And may she R.I.P.

  3. My sincere condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort give you the comfort you need to endure this difficult time and the days ahead (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  4. You were a dear friend. You always contacted me at the right time your prayers and love were always felt. What a blessing your friendship has been to me. Until we see each other again Beth ❤️❤️❤️.

    My prayers and love to you and yours.


  5. My condolences to the family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to “swallow up death forever.” He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time

  6. Our deepest sympathies and prayers for you Brother Rowton and family.
    Sorry we couldn’t be there but issues kept us from traveling. We Love you and we will be in touch soon.
    Rev. Bill and Carol Long
    as well as our children
