Tamekia and family, our prayers go out to you in the passing of your dad. Especially now when honoring and celebrating the life of our loved ones is limited. I pray that through this difficult time, you will rest on God's word and His promises that "[He] is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24.
When you feel overwhelmed, I pray that these words may minister and bring you peace and comfort:
"Say the name of Jesus, Say the name of Jesus; Say the name so Precious, No other name I know; That can calm your fears, dry your tears and wipe away your pain; When you don't know what else to pray; When you can't find the words to say, say the name"
We love you!
Aunt Michele & Uncle Michael

Dear Mr. Hill,

With my spiritual eyes I can see you smiling down on us from Heaven.
You have been welcomed by the angels and a big party has been organised in your honour, for satan has lost the battle. No more pain, no more suffering.
You are gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. Someone so special will always be remembered and the love you shared will never fade. I will miss sitting next to you and listen stories about your youth.
I will miss your smile and kindness.
It's very hard to say Goodbye but I know you are much better there next to our Lord.

Rest in peace.

With Love.

I know that when you are absent from the body then you're present with the Lord. I know that one day I will see you again when I get there. You are gone for a while. I will miss your laugh and the loving voice on the other line. I'm glad that we were able to come to visit you and Auntie Naomi. Thank you for the love that you showed me. Your niece Patrice
To God be the glory.
Your sister and brother-in-law, Harlene and Peter Davis

My dad was the strongest person I know. He was a devoted husband, father, and friend. He believed in giving and living a life of service to others and he loved Jesus Christ, our Lord. He taught me to do the same. I will miss our days together. Before dementia took his mind we would spend hours talking about God and His word. I will miss his fatherly love, advice and friendship. I love him but I am grateful he gets to rest now in the arms of the One who loves him the most! 👏🏽 Love you Dad!❤️
