  • Dear Snow Family, My wife and I are very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear love one. We know this is a difficult time for your family. We want to share something with you that has comforted us during times like these. It is comforting to know that God never meant for us to experience the loss of a love one(Romans 5:12)(James1:13) He has made provisions through his son Jesus to awaken all our love ones asleep in death.( John11:25)(John 5:28,29) God has also promised to wipe away all tears,pain, sorrow and death forever.(Revelation 21:4,5) These promises in the Bible will soon be a reality.(Psalms 37:10,11&29) They give us hope and comfort knowing we will see our love ones again. We pray that your family find peace and comfort in God’s promises for the future.

  • Coy please know you and the extended family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Betty was such a great aunt and we all loved her so much. She has always been full of life and had the desire to show those around her a good time. When any of the extended family from Winston Salem would come
    up to Delaware she wanted to be sure everyone had a good time. She will be missed for by everyone.

  • To Coy, Bob, Ronnie, Doug & Tim Snow & Joanne Rohm and all of your Families:

    We are so sorry to hear aboutf your loss. May God Bless all of you and give you strength & help you through this time of suffering. We love all of you. It is sad to lose your Family. We wish you the best in the coming months. I know you had good times and memories with her. That is something to be thankful for. She was around for a long time. I know that God will help you. God is a good God. If it wasn’t for Him, We could not do anything.
