My heart is saddened to hear that a humble, spiritual, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, and Sunday school teacher have transition home. She did her best to help you when you needed her help. She was devoted to church, family, and her business. She gave everything that she did her best. I’m going to truly miss her and wish I could have talked to her before she made her transition. My heart goes out to the Johnson’s Family and Carlorene House plus to our church family Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church.

While you grieve, know you are not alone. God invites you to "Throw all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."(1 Peter 5:7) He promises to "Swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8) Then you will have the hope of seeing your loved one again for the Bible confirms "There is going to be a resurrection."(Acts 24:15) My condolences to the Family."

I am sorry to hear that you lost your dear loved one. May it comfort you to know that the true God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) has promised to resurrect our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) May he watch over your family during this time of grief.
