    My condolences to the Stinnett Family. May you take comfort in the wonderful promise found in Gods word the Bible to see an end to 'pain, suffering, sickness and even death.' (Revelation 21:4) This is a sure guarantee, that is soon to be fulfilled, from our Heavenly Father Jehovah and I hope you find this promise very comforting at this difficult time. The Bible also holds out a wonderful promise to be able to see our dear loved ones sleeping in death resurrected back to life right here on a paradise earth (John 5:28,28, Acts 24:15).

    We offer our deepest condolences to the Stinnett family. Death of a loved one is one of the hardest things to deal with. Although your hearts are weighed heavy, may you find comfort in God's word the bible and his promise to wipe out all tears, death and pain forever. (Rev.21:3, 4)
