To the family of Melvin Tyson, I am sorry for your loss.  When we lose a loved one in death it is not an easy thing to deal with because death is our enemy, but Jehovah God has promised to destroy this enemy once and for all. (1 Corinthians 15:26)  And he promises that the dead will live again (Isaiah 26:19), but until then may the God of all comfort, comforts each of you during this most difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

Our deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time.  I cannot tell you how much we appreciated the good neighbor that Mr. Tyson was.  He lived across from my Mom for several years in Smiths Station and he was always so kind to check on her and keep an eye out for her especially after the loss of my Father.  He will be greatly missed.  We will keep his friends and family in our prayers.  May God comfort you in this time of loss- The Maple Family
