    Dear David and Maxine, we were so sorry to hear of the loss of your father and husband. Our deepest sympathies to you both.

  • I am sorry for your loss. May you rely on the God of all comfort during this difficult time. The widow and Fatherless boy he relieves(Psalm 146:9). He lovingly provides us with the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection (Isaiah 26:19, John 5:28,29 and 1Thessalonians 4:13,14)We can trust this promise because God has furnished a guarantee to all men in that he resurrected him from the dead (Acts 17:31). “Him” is Jesus Christ.

  • So sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin ,Milford. I just heard of his passing or would have been to his memorial service. Our families have had many great times together. May GOD bless you Maxine and all of Milfords family.

  • My deep condolences to the Cluff 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. 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 recently fell asleep in death.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
