TO THE FAMILY OF: Calvin Cooper
Trinity Community Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Larry Dixon, extend our heartfelt sympathy. While there are no words that can ease the pain you feel, we offer comfort from Jesus Christ in John chapter five, verse twenty-four (5:24):
What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. They will not be judged. They have crossed over from death to life. (NIRV)
While it is sometimes hard to understand why we must face times of sorrow God has given his children the promise that he will never leave us, he will never desert us (Hebrews 13:5, NIRV). At this very moment, Calvin enjoys an understanding of God’s love that you and I cannot even imagine. Please take comfort in knowing that.
The love you have for Calvin is obvious and he will truly be missed. Let it be known that as you weep, you do not weep alone. For “Weeping can stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5, NIRV). Therefore, I say to you, “Wait on the Lord, be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14, NIRV)
We love you and are praying with and for you.
Rev. Dr. Larry D. Dixon, Sr.
