To the Poe Family,
My name is Regina and I would like to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May I take just a moment to share a couple of very encouraging scriptures with you from the Bible? Rev. 21:4 says: God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. Dear Poe Family, when God’s will is done on earth, people will not get sick or die. The deceased in God’s memory will have the opportunity to live forever, for the Bible promises: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) I hope you find comfort in God’s Word. Having lost 3 brothers at a young age, I well know the heavy heart you must have. I find great strength, hope and comfort putting my trust in God’s promises and the hope of that promised resurrection, that Jesus Christ willingly and lovingly died for. He died so that we can gain endless life. We will see our loved ones again.
Sincerely, R. Anderson
Jim was a fun man to be around. He always had a great sense of humor and made us laugh. We will miss him.
We are sure he is with his love, Betty, in heaven.
James Z. Poe was my daddy! 89 years he always had a sense of humor, always wanted people to be happy. He always said life is to short to be unhappy. He was a World War II veteran and spent a year in the hospital in PA from a severe leg injury. Thru letters he met my mom and fell in love. They were married 65 years when she passed 3 years ago. Daddy moved in with my wonderful husband, Ron and our 4 greyhounds and me. Daddy loved watching and talking to the dogs. I want everyone to know how appreciative I am to my husband for caring for daddy daily, while I was at work. I was honored to have been presented with the American Flag at his funeral. What a emotional time that was. Thanks to everyone that loved him and enjoyed him while he was on this earth. He is with mom now and in a much better place, waiting for other loved ones to join them someday!
Wish we could have been there – he was an amazing, wonderful guy. It is a privilege to have known him.
Dear Poe Family,
I am so sorry for your loss please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I personally have found to be a great source of comfort is the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that God is going to bring our loved ones back to life. Also at Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we have sorrow,pain and even death itself. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.
My thoughts and sympathy are with you and yours. He is in a much better place waiting til you meet again.
Let me know if I can do anything for you.
