Rest easy Pop Pop, you will always be in our hearts
Pastor Dawn Edwards
Hazel, Shirley & Sandy,
The greatest comfort we can have when our loved one passes on, is to know that we will see them again. I am thankful that I had the opportunity and priviledge to lead Lou to the Lord, so we can be certain where he is now. And because of his confession of faith we know that those who have excepted Christ will see Him again. So for a believer this is no the end, but a beautiful beginning for Lou. My prayers and our church family’s prayers are with all of you. May God’s comfort and grace see you through the service tomorrow and the days and weeks ahead. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to be blessing
Love, Pastor Dawn
