I am sorry to learn Mrs. Arthur passed. The loss of a loved one is very painful. I offer your family my deepest sympathy. Acts 17:24, 25 and 28 informs us that the God that made the world and all in to all persons live and breath and all things. For by him we have life and move and exist. Rev 4:11 reads...You are worthy Jehovah to receive glory and honor and power. Here are some of many wonderful promises he has made to us that give us hope for 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 that Jehovah promises a resurrection of our loved ones. We must have faith in His promises. To help strengthen our faith, please also read Isaiah 33:24, Isaiah 55:11 and Isaiah 25:8.

Nancy, Jay and Family....So sorry of your loss....."Miss Martha" was a very sweet person and always had a kind word for you whenever she would see you. I do know what you are going through at this time but be assured that there is a God in Heaven and he is great and worthy of our praise. Through this difficult time, "PRAISE HIM" and he will make a way for you. His
grace and mercy is only what carried me through when Mama passed. Time
does heal but you'll forget. Keep all the memories close to your heart. Gale
and I will be praying for you all as the days that come will be precious.
Love and Prayers.....Mike and Gale

Dear Doug and Family,
Martha was one special lady. Martha was one of my favorite volunteers at the Carteret County Historical Society/the History Place. I will always have a special place in my heart for Martha. She was one of the kindest people I ever met. I share your sadness over this loss.
