Sorry for your loss.

Extending Christian Sympathy during your time of bereavement in the death of your loved-one. “Absent from this life, present with the LORD!”

Sister Nina was such a great, sweet and loving person. Always pleasant and a joy to talk with. In all my years of knowing and talking with her, I never once heard a negative word from her about anyone.

I’ll miss our regular Friday evening telephone sharing about the goodness of the Lord and other subjects of interest.

Although all who knew her will miss her greatly, we can rejoice because we know where she’s gone. She’s now asleep with the Lord she loved. For all who knew her Lord, as the Lord and Saviour of their lives can say, we will see her again someday.

Love and Prayers to Family, Relative and Friends.
Sister Cora V. Johnson
