Isaiah26:19 gives us a wonderful hope that can bring comfort in these stressful times "your dead will live.my corpses will rise up.awake and shout joyfully,you residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning" and the earth will let those powerless in death come to life" the resurrection is a sure hope

Greetings Walker Family:
I am deeply saddened by the loss of "Big Daddy," who as family we all loved and will always cherish the fond memories of his time spent with all of us. But I rejoice because he has beatn death according to 1 Cor. 15:55-57, and he awaits the rest of us in a place where there is no more death nor sorrow. Amen!
"Big Momma," unfortunately I am not going to be to attend the wake or the funeral, but my prayers of God's comfort to you and the entire Walker family are always extended to God.
I love all of you and I ask your prayers be with me always.
