Our deepest sympathy to the families in the loss of Cleveland. May the Lord continue to hold you in the palm of His hands as you go through the difficult days ahead. Of great comfort to me is Revelation 21:4: "And God shall wipe away ALL tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." Love, Glenda Gene Danny


GWEN ...sorry to hear of your loss , God will wrap his loving arms around you and comfort you he said he is always near and if we call on him he will answer, I pray he will be with you and your family now and days to come God bless you and yours
