The feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable when coping with the loss of a dear loved one. However, you can find comfort from the Inspired Word at Hebrew 2:14.

I thought about "Stevie" when I learned about the passing of Raymond Harris. Now I am saddened and heart-broken even more. I will always remember the stories he shared about working with my father Mr. Percy L. Thompson Jr. at Lehigh Portland Cement Plant. Boy did he make me laugh. My fondest memories also would be from our participation in the Madrigals at West Side High School and the Lewis Choral Ensemble. I will forever remember the humor laughter and smile of Carl "Stevie" Wiggins. Rest in peace. You were always my brother and friend in Christ. My prayers to the Wiggins family.

I'm very heartbroken and in tears over the death of my good friend Stevie, just 4 days after the death of my brother, make this even more difficult. You will never be forgotten, your funny laugh and of course your amazing voice. You had one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth. We grew up having so much fun on Hovey Street and Mt. Horeb MB Church. I will miss him dearly. My heartfelt condolences to Wiggin's family.

Dear Honey: We sang together and remained in contact over 30 years. Four years ago you entered my life in very special way. You were so cool, so calm. On my birthday I guess you wanted me to know you weren't joking so you really went over the top. You really made me feel special. I didn't realize how much time ee have spent together these last few years. We loved, laughed, cried, prayed, sang, and traveled. I miss you joking, watching you cook, your warm embrace. I miss you calling me every night before midnight to say I Love you or God Bless you and finally you saying I'll see you in the M-O-N-T-I-N-G!! I miss you Honey.

Dear Honey over 30 years ago we sang together in the Voices of Psalms. We remained friends down through the years. 4 Years ago you entered my life in very special way. I must say you out did yourself for my birthday that year. I guess you wanted me to know you weren't joking around.We have laughed, cried, traveled, sang and prayed together. This is the longest we have been separated. My days are long. I never realized just how much time we spent together. I miss your laughter, love the jokes, watching you cook and your call every night to say I love you or God Bless you and finally you saying I'll see you in the M-O-N-T-I-N-G!! Yes my Honey, My Angel (our favorite Song ) by Laylah Hathaway. I'll see you in the M-O-N-T-I-N-G!! Missing you.
