One Condolence to Imogene “Jean” S. Martin

  1. Jacqueline Nunnally-Boyd says:

    I am sorry to learn Mrs. Imogene Martin has passed. The loss of a loved one is very painful. I offer my deepest sympathy during this time of sorrow. I’d also like to share scripture that may bring comfort. Acts 17:24, 25 and 28 informs us: The God that made the world and all things in it…gives to all persons life and breath and all things. For by him we have life and move and exist. Rev 4:11…You are worthy Jehovah to receive glory and honor and power. Here are a few among many promises made by him to give us hope of everlasting life. Rev 21:4 tells us…he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor out cry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away. Acts 24:15 also tells us Jehovah promises a resurrection of our loved ones. We must have faith in His promises. To strengthen our faith, please also read Isaiah 33:24, Isaiah 55:11 and Isaiah 25:8.
