Hello and thanks for checking out my page.....My name is Lisa and the year of 1998 was a difficult one for me and my family. Within 8 months we lost 4 very important people in our lives. I made this webpage so I could share my memories of them with my family and my online friends! I would also like to mention that GOD plays a very important role in our family's lives. With this in mind, we believe that they are not dead but in a place of Paradise with our Heavenly Father. I would also like to say that each of our departed loved ones were ready to meet the heavenly Savior and are alive forevermore!!
IN LOVING MEMORY OF.....
On January 26, 1998, Dwayne, age 27, was found in the den of his parent's home on his knees as if to be praying(the Bible was beside him and Psalms 30 was underlined.) The autopsy later revealed he had died of a coronary heartattack. Over 600 people attended his funeral. I was so proud! Then on February 1, only five days after Dwayne's death, his father Harold (my grandfather) passed away of lung cancer. He was a retired postal worker. It makes perfect sense for this father and son to depart the world together as they were inseperable.
WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A NIGHT, BUT JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING. (Psalms 30:5)
After losing her only baby boy and her beloved husband, my grandmother Betty was broken hearted. She tried to stay strong and relied upon GOD to get her through each day, but her heart was still broken. She longed to be with them in Paradise. I will always remember hearing her sobbing in bed at night when all the lights were out and she lay there in the still darkness. We tried so hard to make her happy but it was not to be. 19 weeks after the death of her husband (June 14, 1998), she said her prayers with her daughter Tina and ten minutes later the heavenly Savior sent his best angel to come take her home to be with Him and the family she missed so much. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone. To know her was to love her.
HE WILL SEND HIS BEST ANGELS TO WATCH OVER YOU!!!
My aunt Charlotte's life was never an easy one, and most of her troubles she brought on herself, but she was loved by all. Her favorite song she used to sing in church was "I'm A Wondering Soul." She loved the Lord with all her heart but made many mistakes along the way. She had two boys, whom were the apple of her eye. Their names are Kevin and Shawn Howard, ages 28 and 25. She could never accept the deaths of her mother, father, and brother. She grieved for them daily and went into a deep depression. On Oct. 13, 1998, she died of sudden liver failure. This was three months and one day after the death of her mother. Again, my family felt the pressence of the almighty GOD and his angels wrap their arms around us and help us to understand that GOD knows best and his timing is not our timing.
FAITH DOESN'T GET YOU AROUND TROUBLE IT GETS YOU THROUGH IT!!
GRIEF IS A POWERFUL THING. IT'S A GOOD THING, A HEALING THING. IT'S A WAY TO LET GO OF A LOT OF PAIN. BUT IT'S SOMETHING TO GO THROUGH, NOT HOLD ON TO!!
So Dear Friend if you are reading this and grieving over the loss of a loved one, but don't know GOD as your personal Savior, I urge you to call upon his name because He loves you and wants to help you. ALl you have to do is ASK!!!
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON FOR WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. (John 3:16)
