Celebrating the life of Rachel Cobb Walker
Thank you for signing Rachel Cobb Walker's Guestbook
I'm so sorry to the family for their loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one to death. I lost someone very dear to me some years ago and what brings me comfort during those especially hard days is to reflect on the promises found in the Bible. John 5:28,29 says there will be a resurrection and Revelation 21:3-5 speaks of a time when all suffering will cease to exist, including sickness and death. It's my hope that these promises bring you as much comfort as they have brought me. Please accept my sincerest condolences. Jw.org

Broughton and family, throughout my childhood and into my late teens, we remember the precious memories of Rachel and you as we worshipped together there at Trinity. May the Lord comfort you during this time. We always loved you and your family.
