Celebrating the life of Willie Eugene "Morris" Pickrell, Jr.
Thank you for signing Willie Eugene "Morris" Pickrell, Jr.'s Guestbook
I'm so sorry to the family for their loss. I lost someone very dear to me some years ago. What brings me comfort is to know the Bible refers to death as sleep (John 11:11) & an enemy whose effects will be reversed (John 5:28, 29). So although our time with our loved ones was cut short, we both can have the hope of being reunited with them under perfect circumstances here on Earth (Revelation 21:3-5). The Bible's promise of a resurrection doesn't eliminate the pain of losing our loved one but just the thought of being able to hold them again can make your pain easier to bear; this has been so for me. It's my hope that these promises bring you and your family as much comfort as they have brought me. Please accept my deepest sympathy
