You have our deepest sympathy. May the God of Love and Peace be with you and your family. May it console you to know that others care and think of you. We ask God to bless you with courage to bear the sorrow that fills your heart. John 5:28,29

Trotty Family, Snellville , GA

I'm sorry for your lost. Death is never easy for anyone to deal with , because it wasn't God purpose. I truly believe that one day she will live again, because God promised his people in Re 24:4 that he will do away with death and also in Joh 11:25 clearly says that " those exercising faith in me ,even though he dies, will come to life . One day we will all be together again with the ones we lost in death and will never have to experience it again.

I was so very sad to hear about the passing of a wonderful woman and dear person, Deborah "Debbie" Thomas. She was a longtime bowler of the Savannah Ambucs and attended CCDS for over 50 years (Chatham ARC for us old-timers). Debbie was as sweet and loving as they come and was an enthusiastic, cheerful bowler. She liked everyone she met. Her smile lit up a room. Her friends will miss her so much.
