Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. So very sorry to read of the loss of your husband. At the same time, seeing two people married for such a long time certainly honors our Creator who instituted marriage. I can only imagine how many memories you made and shared together. I hope that you will be able to smile at times when you reflect on the many fond memories you built. It is truly an amazing promise given to us at John 5:28,29. I pray that as you read this scripture, it can give you hope and strength to look forward

  2. I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and I hope the following suggestions help the family members and those who loved Conrad Henry Whitman to lessen their grief. Talk about your feelings to "a true companion" who will listen patiently and sympathetically. If you have feelings of guilt thinking that some neglect on your part contributed to your loved one’s death, realize, though, that no matter how much we love another person, we cannot prevent "time and unforeseen occurrence from befalling those we love. (Ecclesiastes 9:11) More than anything else, a relationship with God can help you to cope with the death of someone you love. Isaiah 33:24 promises the time when an end to sickness will become a reality. God will put an end to pain, suffering and even DEATH. God promises at Isaiah 25:8 that death will be swallowed up forever.
