Memories Timeline


  1. To Mrs. Kershaw's family: May you find all the necessary comfort to help you cope with your loss. Psalm 46:1 states: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress". Rely on him and you'll have the strength to keeping going. Moreover, note what his word tells us about the future in John 5:28,29. "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". He promises us that we will be able to see our dead loved ones again. Imagine when that day becomes a reality.
