Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."He was preceded in death by grandfathers, James Fletcher Rogers and Bradford Leon Therrell; grandmother, Winifred Silcox Therrell; and aunt, Janet Rogers Knox.

My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mr. Therrell. 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!
