To the family and friends of Joanne Marie Poteat
Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one, Joanne. These words from the scriptures helped me when I experienced the death of a loved one "And no resident will say: “I am sick...." (Isaiah 33:24). Also another Bible promise says: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." (1 Corinthians 15:26) We all look forward to the time, in the future, when these promises are fulfilled. I hope these words from the Scriptures will bring a measure of comfort. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Kathy
