To a family that has roots deep within my heart, please know my prayers are with you. "Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible (body) must put on incorruption (be raised holy and honorable), and this mortal (earthly body) must put on immortality (be raised an eternal, everlasting, undying body)" (1 Corinthians 15:51-53). "But I would not have you be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words" (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Praise ye the Lord. I love each and every one of you.

TO THE FAMILY OF EILEEN ELLIS:
We the Trinity Community Baptist Church Family, extend a heartfelt sympathy to your family. There are no words that will ease your pain just now. I can only offer you some comfort with these words from John 5:24:
Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears My word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life.
While it is sometimes hard to understand why we must face times of sorrow God has given his children the promise that he will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). At this moment, Eileen enjoys an understanding of God that you and I cannot even imagine. Please take comfort in knowing that.
We love you and are praying with and for you.

To Eilleen's family: I would like to extend my heart felt sympathy in the lost of Eilleen. We worked together in the late 1990s in the VA/MD area. We were friends and she visited me at my house on a couple of occasions. She was a good person. I liked her a lot. She always talked about her father "Big Jim", her mother, and siblings. She loved her family. We lost touch and I had been trying to locate her when I found this site. I was devastated to see this, but I knew she had cancer earlier. She is in such a wonderful place now with the Lord, that we can not imagine. Again, she was a friend, and I miss her, and extend my sorrow at your lost. Thank you
