I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears l. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.

"Lavender Scarf" The scarf I gave unto you that visitation day we together hoped it to adorn you back this way. To find with you a resting place and home at Fleetwood Drive. Nestled amongst your other treasures there as you saw fit. But alas my sweet, God would have none of it. He said I suppose " No More! Come up hither through my door, the everlasting door. Put the little lavender scarf wherever you may, but above all rejoice in this. Cecelia is with the Lord to stay."

Dear Jimmy and Jackie,
May your hearts after mourning, rejoice with a sound of triumph that Mother is with our Lord and Savior...absent from us and body but ever present with the Lord...Job 19:25-27, "I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that Jesus shall stand at the latter day upon the earth, and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God. Whom I shall see for myself and mine eyes shall behold and not another". Love, prayers, blessings to the Ingram family from the Tyler family (Levert, Lisa, David, Lorie, Portia, Ricky, Renny, Lucia and Lauren)
