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.

Myrna O. Brown To the family of Sister/Mother Mary, it is with great sadness that this precious soul has taken flight to be with the Lord. She was very resourceful and supportive of me as Leader of the Women's ministry of Mount Hermon. She would always encourage me to continue "doing what you do" for the Lord and never be intimidated by those who come against what I did in the Kingdom. Even though she was not with us, I often thought of her. To me, I found her to be a lady of integrity. Family, your grieving is not in vain for she will be missed but remember "Sister Mary was a Woman with Purpose." I love you all!
