My condolences and prayers to the Anthony and Whitfield family. Mrs. Rachel and Mr. Earl were wonderful neighbors growing up next too. One of the things I loved about Mrs. Rachel she was direct and shot straight from the "hip" Genuine. Her beautiful spirit will be missed but not forgotten. Family remember the good times to make smile and laugh.
What a beautiful smile, she has a smile that makes you want to smile. You know our heavenly father made us a promise. We can read about it in his Holy Bible at Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." And at 1Corinthian 15:26
it says, "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing."
We know this to be true, because at Numbers 23:19 it says, "God is not a mere man who tells lies." So if our heavenly father says, he is going to wipe away the tears from all our faces; and tears of sorrow will vanish; no one will die from natural causes or weep. Rest assured it will happen. Please take comfort in know that, your heavenly father is there to bring you comfort.
