    To the family and friends of Ernest Johnson,
    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.These words from the Scriptures helped me when I experienced the death of a loved one, “And no resident will say:” I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error”(Isaiah 33:24). Also another Bible promises says:”And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.”(1.Corinthians 15:26)We all look forward to the time,in the future,when these promises are fulfilled. I hope these words from the Scriptures bring you a measure of comfort. Please accept my sincere sympathy. EM
