I Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the one saying to you 'Do not be afraid. I myself will help you.' (Isa 41:13) To all of my Family: I know that these days are difficult for everyone right now. Death our enemy has taken away a very special person that we all hold close to our hearts. But, Jehovah our God is telling us not to be afraid because he has plans of his own. Carla had strong faith in Jehovah and what he can do for her. She felt the same way Jesus felt at John 10:29, "What my father has given me is something greater than all things and no one can snatch them of of the hand of the father." What Jehovah has promised her is a chance of everlasting life that nobody or nothing can take way from her, not even death. Carla firmly believed in the resurrection and even looked forward to it so that she can see her dead loves one again. So take to heart Jehovah's words and listen to his voice and not only will you have the same hope that Carla is waiting for, but you will be there with her. To my family, please be strong and rely on Jehovah to get you through your pain and suffering and know that my heart goes out to each and everyone of you. Tony, Mary, Sweet and Dee and all who took care of Carla during her illness, I want you to know that it was deeply appreciated and that your good deeds didn't go unnoticed. Last of all I would like to thank Jehovah for being there for Carla though all of her tribulations and allowing her to throw her burdens upon you. Please continue to be with our family and help them get though this difficult time. With our deepest sympathy Lovie, Chad and Deja
The hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28) Jehovah God has lovingly provided the hope of a resurrection and the gift of eternal life in paradise for all those who display love for him and have faith in the ransom sacrifice of his son Jesus Christ. Carla was one of Jehovah's beloved children who had that love and faith. Although her life was blessed with family members who love her deeply, she also had many ailments that robbed her of much joy. She will be missed beyond what words can express, but there is also a small measure of comfort in the knowledge that she will no longer endure the pain and tribulations that this world threw upon her. She knew that there was more than what this current system offered and she looked forward to the time when there will be no more sickness, death, or mourning. (Revelation 21:4) God promises that, and she believed it to be so. What a wonderful testimony of her faith. She knew that there was more for her than what this world has to offer. We, too, must believe that there is more for her, that she will live again, and that we will be there with her. At that time, death will have no victory and even the angels will cry out with joy when Carla is awakened from her sleep. So, we can take a moment to mourn over our loss now, but let's also rejoice together soon as we welcome her back to enjoy a wonderful new world that will be here to greet her.
Tony & family, I can't begin to express how sad I am for you. Always remember that Carla will live forever in your hearts. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Tony and Family: Please accept my deepest sympathies. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the grief that you are experiencing now be overcome by joyous memories from the past! May God bless you all!
I just want to share a poem that our Grandfather wrote when our family first experienced a loss with the death of our Uncle Michael. There have been several others that were close to us that have died since this poem was written by my grandfather, Carlas father, including my grandfather him self therefore I will take the opportunity to share this poem for my grandfather. My Prayer To My Family For strength and Endurance by Warren H. Johnson Sr. Death the Dancer Death can be such a gruesome and terrible thing Sinister and ugly with pain That only tribulation can bring. but death can also be a very kind and gentle thing With emotion A spiritual feeling love that clings For when a loved one dies, there is no need to cry An eternity for we that survive Is only a second for them We are blessed when a loved one dies. In a flickering of an eye We will rest b their side. Eternally. Although our aunt is gone she will never be forgotten and we all look forward to seeing her walk the earth again when she is resurrected with the rest of Jehovah's people. Love your niece Soni
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
Anthony & Family, My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. You are in my prayers.
Family - we love you all. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God ; trust also in me.” John 14:1
To the Gipson and Johnson Family May Jehovah bless all of you whom are suffering right now. Carla is not gone, she is laid to rest. Her memories will live in all of us. At times like this we need to remember the good times and know that she is in a better place. Everyone goes on this Journey. We will truly miss our Aunt, she was a good person. She was a wife, mom, sister and our aunt; but, we loved her as a sister. We will accept what has happened to her and not be sad, because her memories will always be in our heart. So the price of death can never compare to what she has left behind. So this is not good bye, but so long for now. We love you and look forward to the time when we will be together once again.
Tony & family, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your wife/mom, my deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
