  1. May the family find comfort in loving memories, and in knowing that God is “close to those that are broken at heart; and he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon “swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) With deepest sympathy.

  2. I am sorry to read of your loss. Many have lost loved and want to see them again. The Bible actually has an comforting scripture found at Acts 24:15, which says,”And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” There is a hope that you can see your loved one again. May this be of some comfort during this time.

  3. Carolyn,

    I am so sorry to hear of your families loss. I do not remember your brother, but I certainly remember Tookie. She was a very special lady. Would love to catch up on our long ago friendship. Call me sometime. Wayne and I are in the phone book. Take care of yourself, and I hope to hear from you soon. Doris (Byrd) Peterson

  4. I would like to send my deepest condolences to the family of my one of my best friends growing up in Galveston,Ray.We grew up on Hollywood street,and I remember Ray as the one guy who had all the new toys on the block.He was always willing to play with all the guys in the neighborhood,we always had fun when we played outside.I”ll never forget those great times growing up with Ray,he was a true friend growing up.I lost track of him when we moved to Texas City.Ray found my number and came to visit me and my family a year after we moved.I later married and moved and totally lost track of him.My mother told me of his passing and my heart is hurting because I”ll miss him.I pray that Ray new Jesus,because if he does then it”s not goodbye,but see you later.Let not your heart be troubled,ye believe in God,believe also in me.(John 14:1)
