Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Melinie~ Ijust learned from Stacey about the loss of your Dad. Please accept our prayerful thoughts and deepest sympathy. May you feel God's presence in a special way during this difficult time. Blessings to you and your family.

  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your dad, Melinie. I lost my dad in 2011 and my mom in 2007. Sure do miss them. I wish I could lessen your pain. Time helps somewhat, sometimes, but you never stop missing them. May The Lord grant you peace.

  3. We are sadden to hear about your loss. Our prayer is that you draw closer as a family and that you draw closer to our Heavenly Father. So many will unjustly blame him for the death of James. But He is described in the Bible as a GOD of love and the Source of Life. So if this is true then why would he punish you and I with snatching away the one who brought all of us so much joy? Please don't believe this untruth about our Father. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a yearning to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory including your dear James and to see all of them live on earth again."Job 14:14, 15.
