  • Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. My heart goes out to the family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s Word refers to death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) Very soon our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth.

  • Ray and family,

    We are very sorry to learn of the loss of your mother and grandmother. Our family had some good times both with Velda and with Bob, two wonderful friends to the Mankins.
