    Sharon Johnson says:
    When someone we love dies, it leaves a hole in our hearts. This sorrow was felt by Jesus, Mary and Martha when Lazarus their brother died. Jesus said to Martha: ìI am the resurrection and the life, the one who exercises faith in me even though he dies, will come to life. Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?î Then he proceeded to resurrect Lazarus and he promises to resurrect all those in the memorial tombs. Please read John 5:28, 29 in your Bible and may this hope bring your family comfort.

    My deepest sympathy to Roland's immediate family. So sorry for your loss of a father and grandfather. My cousin was always ready for mischief from the time we were kids. He enjoyed a full life and I'll miss him. I remember the thrills he gave my Mother when he would take her out for a motorcycle ride. God bless him.
