Condolence: We are so sorry to read this news about Ann.
We were second cousins but have not seen her in years. We remind you what is said in the Bible, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, this is a miracle in itself.
Our prayers are with you.
Condolence: Such sadness hearing of Ann passing. What a Wonderful Lady she was. She always made you feel welcome & loved, & certainly spoiled us kids. Alot of happy memories of 'Aunt Ann' & 'Uncle Billy' when growing up in Ripley. My thoughts & prayers are with the family during this time of loss.
Condolence: I want to offer my condolences to the Lewellen family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). Our heavenly Father of tender mercies knows your pain. He never purposed his human family to have health issues, grow old, and die, but to live in perfect health and life forever. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy and promised to remove sickness, old age, and death__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing"; Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say: "I am sick"; Isaiah 35:5,6; Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” Finally, He promised to undo the effect of death by bringing our love ones in the memorial tombs back to life__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” I hope these words give you all comfort.
