Cheryl Nottingham Mosley Tommy, I was only in your company twice; those times were memorable. One occasion I was honored to be a guest in you home as an attendant as to celebrate your birthday. The 2nd time was at my house as you and your wife (my aunt Sharon)was visiting your sister-in-law(my mother Rev. Dr Nottingham). Now this is your day to shine as we celebrate your transition to a perfect prepared place with the Lord. To your lovely wife and children God will continue to take care of you. My prayers continue to be with all.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Although this is a very sad time for the famiy, the Bible provides us with so much encouragement. Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3, 4 states that God will do away with all causes we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. It is our hope that these thoughts will bring comfort to you and your family.
