Our heart-felt sympathy is extended to the entire Williams-Martin family. Schenita was well loved by us, and was a true warrior for God until her demise.  We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to come and see you and pray with you one last time before God called you home. Moreover, it was a great honor that God allowed our paths to cross. It is truly a comfort in knowing that one day we shall meet again.  Thank you Jesus for taking Schenita into your loving arms and we pray for the peace and comfort of her family.

To the family and friends of Schenita, I am so sorry for your loss. Schenita and I attended Union High School together and she was always a quiet and soft spoken person.  May the family be comforted by the God of all comfort, who comforts us all in our time of sorrow. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)  With heartfelt condolences to the family.
