    JOHN 14:1-3 KJV Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

  9. To the Family and Friends of Linell Nunley

    Please allow me to express my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. The pain and sorrow experienced during this difficult time can be overwhelming. However, I am often comforted by the words found in God’s word, the Bible. For instance, when grieving the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, the Bible reports that “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:35). What is even more comforting is the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, and so like Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, the Bible expresses the hope of the resurrection whereby we may see our loved ones again. (Read John 11:38-44; 5:28, 29). What a marvelous hope.

    May Jehovah God grant you peace during this time and provide comfort for you and your loved ones.

    Sincerely,

    Jeanine W.

  16. Hey Bubs,
    It’s been a tough road for you as well as all of us. As the song “Joy and Pain” goes “Sunshine and Rain”. You’re in good company now and God has relieved you of all pain and suffering inside and out. I know we’ve always maintained a spirit of love between us, within us that nobody but God understood more and that wasn’t always outwardly obvious, but it was there! Peace and Love my Brother-Ronnie

  17. Staci I am so sorry for the loss of your father you all are in our prayers.
    He might be gone but he is still watching over you.
    Love you the Bentleys
