Ron and Leonera Quarles would like to send our deepest sympathy and continued prayers for the family.

To the family of our beloved brother Dante

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord...

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Prayers for the family. Hold onto God's unchanging hand...

To:Rev Lewis and Family so sorry for your loss you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincere Sympathy...

Our prayers and condolences for you all! God Bless and Keep You until we meet again!❤

My sincere condolences to you, Ben, and all of your family. I am holding you in my heart today.
