Guestbook

Dear family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from the promises in God's word at Revelation 21:3,4 about no more sickness or death and at Acts 24:15 where his Son says "there is going to be a resurrection...". Heartfelt prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Family,
I am so sorry to learn of Luther's passing. He was a fine gentleman and member of Main Street United Methodist Church. His service to his country in World War II is a wonderful testament to the kind of person Luther was. I know that you have many fond memories of him, and it is my hope that those memories sustain you in the coming days.
Sincerely,
Ron Williams and staff of the Suffolk Treasurer's Office
