Not sure what to say?

Mary Jo O'Nishea

May God Bless You and your family in this time of sorrow.. I am so sorry for your loss.... When I first came to Alabama in 1989 Jonh Robert gave me a job at his tavern in Minor Hill.. He treated me like part of his family and I will never forget that.. R.I.P. John Robert Appleton Sr. you will never beforgotten, you will always be in my heart forever.. Mary Jo O'Nishea

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He...

My condolences to the loss of your love one. Death is something that was not meant for humankind, because God created humans with a yearning to live forever (Eccl. 3:11). However, our loving Heavenly Father gives us a wonderful hope that 'death will be brought to nothing' and that we will see our love ones again (1 Corinthians 15:26; Mark 5:39-42).

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
