Grady will be missed. We remember the earlier days (1970's) when he was mayor in Holly Springs and we were business owners there. Things were a lot simpler. Condolences to his good family and friends. Art and Pat Newill

Please accept my most sincere sympathy for the death of your loved one. We can find comfort in the word of God because it assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" (Acts 24:15). God promises to give life back to millions of people who have died, and he desires to do so very soon.
A servant of God from the past, Job, asked him: “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service (sleep in death) until my relief comes. You (Jehovah) will call, and I (Job) will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands” (Job 14:14, 15). God is longing to give life back to those who have died.
Perhaps these words do not calm your pain reflecting on the divine promises found in the Bible will give you the hope and strength to keep going until all of God’s promises are fulfilled. May these words bring you and your family much comfort from Jehovah God, the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4.)
