  1. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. Psalm 116:15

    Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. & if I go & prepare a place for you, I will come again & receive you unto myself that where I am, there ye may be also.
    John 14:1-4 (KJV)

    Frankie & Family,
    So sorry that you have lost Bill so suddenly, but rejoicing that he is with his Lord & Savior. Remebering you in prayer.

    • So sorry to hear of Bills passing. I know that he is with God this very day. He and Annabelle were my favorite cousins. I saw them often as I was growing up at my aunt Dessie’s Home.

      I pray that God will bless you more through these days of mourning.

      Love ,

      Charlotte Fosburgh Rollins
