May you all be comforted by many memories and God's Grace.

In the days ahead, may we smile, yes may we laugh out loud, whenever her memory visits you and us.

I can't help but smile on the inside when I think about the legacy she is leaving behind. Think about all the generations that have been and will be blessed by the life she lived.May the memory of your mom give you the same feelings of love you had when she was alive. I'm praying that God grants you strength at this time, and that He gives you comfort that is as good as Ms. Nanniel's touch.

To the James family, I am so sorry for your loss.  May God light your way and give you comfort during this time of sorrow.  The scripture at Isaiah 25:8,9 tells us that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever and it is also a comfort to know that there will be a resurrection hope found at John 5:28,29.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. The Bible promises that the dead will live again. Please draw comfort from these scriptures: Isaiah 25:8, 9; John 5:28, 29.
