    To the Family of Francis Howard: In the Bible at Psalm 90:10 it refers to those who live well into their 70s or 80s as being especially strong. Your beloved was blessed with this strength. May his strength trickle down to family and friends helping you to cope in the days ahead. As you cherish warm memories, lean on God for everlasting comfort and good hope, 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 for he is close to those brokenhearted Psalm 34:18. My deepest sympathy.

  2. R Bailey says:

    Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our almighty Jehovah continue to hold you all in the palm of His hand. has been a blessing to us over the years and we thoughtfully share. As witnesses for our risen Lord Jesus Acts 1:8, may He richly bless you all. 'Precious Lord, take my hand…lead me home'.
