  • 2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of Elohem;(God) an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
    2 Corinthians 5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
    2 Corinthians 5:3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
    2 Corinthians 5:4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
    2 Corinthians 5:5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is Elohem (God), who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
    2 Corinthians 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from YAH( the Lord:)
    2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
    2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
    2 Corinthians 5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
    2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of YissiYAH (Christ;)that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

  • Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is YissiYAH (Christ,)and to die is gain.
    Philippians 1:22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
    Philippians 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with YissiYAH (Christ;) which is far better:

    I send these scriptures for comfort in knowing that your son will be greatly missed and I’m so sorry for your lost. I love you and my prayers are always with y’all Salamah!

    Ps my finger hit the post button, but I wasn’t finished yet lol… love you brethren

  • Oh Loreen, what can I say. I looked at the video and it brought a tear to my eyes. He looked like an adorable child who grew up to be a fine young man taken from us way to early. I love you Loreen and what I always remember is how comforting you were to me when we first met when I was dealing with the loss of my Gracie. I can’t,imagine how much more difficult it is to lose a child you brought into the world. This is not the time to share words on the best way to heal through this terrible ordeal. Everybody grieves differently. This is the time for prayer. Real prayer each day and each night that asks Jesus and his Holy mother Mary to warmly embrace Que. He is in a better place that God has set aside for each of us. I really believe that. Anything you need, know I’m here for you.

  • You will forever be my little bro. I will forever miss you. I’m so glad I met you in my life. Got to be your friend. Sometimes your guide. I’m happy I got to see you❤️❤️

  • My Condolences To Que’s Parents, Siblings, Grand Parents, Cousins, Aunties, Uncles, Friends & All Who Love Him. Prayers For Strength & Peace For The Entire Rutherford Family. Love Drake & The Randall Family🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  • Condolences to the Rutherford family. We don’t understand God’s timing. However, we are not asked to understand all we need to do is to hold God’s hand. Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.

  • We may question why. But Know that in love God calls us in his time. We will feel sad but remember the good and fun times. In time you’ll find yourselves laughing at the fun times and silly times you had together. Sorrow is for a time but joy comes in the morning. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Quintin. I am deeply sadden at the loss of your loved one. May God bless you all and comfort you in his loving arms.

  • Words can’t express my sadness. Prayers and Condolences to the Family. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  • Prayers and my condolences go out to you and your family

  • Be strong and keep your head up

  • I just watch the video I know your heart is broken Amen Q thomas
