Edgar & Family,

It is the prayer of all of your brethren that you and your family find the peace that surpasses all understanding during this time of need. That you allow the Joy of the Lord to be your strength. That you REJOICE knowing very well where Anna Mae is right now and knowing that death couldn’t hold Jesus down and because Anna Mae was saved, death didn’t hold her down either. Although I never got the opportunity to meet her I know that she was very much loved and a kindhearted soul, always doing for others without expecting anything in return. May her legacy continue to live on as she lived for Jesus…may you also live, find comfort in Him ALL the days of your life.

We are praying for you all and seeking the Lord to minister to your hearts. We are here for you and know that you are loved very much!

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

II Corinthians 5:8 NKJV

We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

I am sorry for your loss Edgar and Cynthia. Your mom sounds like she had a great life. I pray peace for you both and understanding that she is in a far better place then we are 🙂

Love you both. See you soon!
