  12. William Haithcock says:

    Jesus plainly states in John 11:25, “I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” Instead of fear or doubt or anxiety, we as Christians are to have confidence and assurance! Confidence and assurance in the God that made us and loves us so much that He “became flesh and blood” and died to save us! On behalf of the staff and membership of the Harrisonburg – Rockingham Association of REALTORS, I would like to express our sincere sympathies to the Dent family for a life too soon ended. Though, with confidence and assurance as well, we trust that Mr. Dent is with God and free from the pain and sorrows of our fallen world.

  13. We are very shocked and grieved to learn you’ve left us. You were always a bright spot in our lives, a cheerful interlude to the troublesome news and challenges of our daily routines. Always so positive, optimistic and encouraging!! You brought a bright and warm glow to many lives beyond our own. You’ll be sorely missed but you’ve left so much that we will always cherish, including our memory of you and your smile. We wish your family peace and contentment in the satisfaction of their good fortune in sharing much more of you and your life than we were so blessed. Our warm embrace goes with you and them.
