Please accept my sincere condolence. May you find comfort through the Word of God. “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces…” Isa 25:8. This promise will be accomplished by means of God’s Kingdom or government with His son Jesus Christ ruling as king (Dan 2:44).

To our sweet Emily, we have known you only 16 months and you filled our lives with friendship, laughter and love! You appeared as we arrived as new Myrtle Beach residents and our circle of friends was very small. We needed you, like you needed our ’little gang’. We enjoyed our talks, visits and get-togethers and your gift of love will always be remembered. God Bless you! Love from Marlene and Steve.
