Miss Gloria was such a sweet and genuine person toward Johnny and I each time we met. She'll need missed by many. Condolences to the family.


My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mrs. Tambling. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
