  3. Freddy & Phillip,
    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. With our deepest condolences.

  4. I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Lincoln family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death is an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26) that will very soon be eliminated forever, and no family will mourn the death of a loved one (Revelation 21:4). This promise has been given by Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18). Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It’s a reality though for God cannot lie (Titus 1:2).

  6. My condolences to the family. Alice was my ex-sister-in-law and we had lost touch due to time and distance. We reconnected about 10 years ago and she was so kind and generous to catch me up on the family. She was special and I’m sure she will be missed by many friends and family.
