Burnadette Carter I grew up knowing Sister Mitchell and my family has loved her for almost 40 years. My mother, Carolyn Wallace, called her a big sister and best friend. The loss of such a beautiful and loving person will never be filled and we mourn her every single day, especially my mother, as they spoke on the phone several times each day. We love you all dearly from the Wallaces in Texas.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible brings us so much comfort. We have personally found that Revelation 21:3,4 brings us much comfort. It lets us know that God will do away with all causes we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. Knowing this has comforted us and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family as well.

Williams Family The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

Mrs. Jordan To The Family, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I also want to share the comfort of John 5:28,29 where we are promised that those who have fallen asleep in death have the hope of receiving a "resurrection" back to life. Life on an earth restored to a beautiful paradise. Psalms 37:11 says, "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." While we await that wonderful time please find comfort in these promises.
