    Joe, I am so sorry about your beloved mother. She was one of the most wonderful people I have ever known. I am sorry I cannot make the funeral because I am babysitting for my grandchildren in New York this weekend. She was my other mother and I will never forget her! Martha Cantillon Cliffel

    To the family and friends of the deceased,
    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort from the pages of God’s word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3-5}. The Bible tells us why we die (Genesis 2:16, 17; Romans 5:12) the condition of the dead (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and that we can be reunited with our loved ones (Acts 24:15). The Bible also tells us where this happy event will take place (Psalm 37:29; 115:16). At John 17:3 Jesus tells us the benefit of reading and studying the Bible. He also said at John 8:32 that “the truth will set you free”. Please visit to learn what the Bible really teaches.
