Memories Timeline


  1. I’m sorry for the lost of your loved one Mrs Lamson. At times like this we all look for comfort and hope and God’s Word the Holy Bible provides us with both. Note please Jesus words of comfort spoken to Martha, who just lost her brother, in John 11:23-25, ‘Your brother will rise, I am the resurrection and the life, he that exercises faith in me even though he dies will come to life.’ Another Scripture that helps is Revelation 21:4,5, ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.’ Look I am making all things new, write because these things are Faithful and True.’ So God’s Word the Holy Bible gives us a wonderful hope. I hope these verses help some at this difficult time

  2. Extending deepest sympathy to the family of Edna Lamson. Cherish your many fond memories of Edna and revel in the love of family and friends to get you through this difficult time.

  3. Edna Anne was one of my favorite ladies and a lady she was. She added so much to our Project Linus Chapter. Her talents were many and she shared them with children who needed that blanket hug. She will be greatly missed, but remembered fondly.

  4. I hope the memories of your loved one bring you comfort through these tough times. The bible also provides us comfort at Revelation 21: 4 where it mentions in Gods due time he will wipe death and sickness away. What a wonderful promise God provided us.
