When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

    I will cherish all the times we had together. Whether it be our “ugly face contests” in the middle of class, borrowing each others clothes, our several jobs we worked together, or our crazy nights where we didnt know where we would end up! You were my very best friend throughout my childhood. You taught me what it was to live life to its fullest. I am very thankful you came across my path when you did. My life was changed for the better ever since. I will miss you deeply friend. RIH love

YOUR FRIEND AND SISTER IN CHRIST “ACOLDPIECE”

  • My deep condolences to the Oliphant family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. Yes, His written word the Bible. In the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14 please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to cancer. I truly understand the pain that comes from losing someone so precious to us.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
    Sissy
