  2. I will miss you my little brother. I love you and know you will rejoice in Heaven when you meet our Heavenly Father and be reunited with those who have gone before you. I am left alone without any siblings now and it is a lonely feeling.
    And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Rest in peace and know:
    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

    Laura Williams
  3. I am deeply sorry for your loss. May Jehovah the God of comfort be with you all during this difficult time. John 5:28,29 says “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” The bible promises that one day you will be able to see Mr. Mayfield again in a beautiful paradise on earth. Ecc. 9:5,10 says “The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all . . . Whatever your hand finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave, where you are going.” No need to worry, Mr. Mayfield is simply sleeping awaiting to be resurrected.
