Dear Horne family, I am so sorry to hear about the lost of your love one miss Margaret. Since death wasn't originally God's purpose for mankind, it is very painful to deal with, but please read the wonderful hope that the Bible holds out for us all at Revelation 21: 3 and 4. Please visit www.jw.org for consolingly answers to questions like; " What is the meaning of life"? and also " Is God to blame for our sufferings?

Valerie, Lawrenceville, GA

My most sincere condolences to the Horne family for their loss. Even though death touches us all, it is a painful experience and hard to accept. Words and actions can never really take away our pain and realistically less than often bring any true comfort. However in the past I have found some relief in the promise found in Revelation 21:3,4 where our Heavenly Father promises to wipe away every tear from our eyes and do away with death. May this promise help you as they also helped me.

E.Valdes, Greenville , SC

Dear Horne family, according to (Issiah 33:24.)God will do away with sickness forever. We look forward to that time when no one will say I'm sick. We look forward to that time. Jesus' death makes that possible.

Willie, Loganville,

It is with sadness that I learn of Carol's death. I know she has struggled for many years with her health. During this long-time illness she was always blessed to be surrounded and loved by many individuals, along with her SVA friends. May you rest in peace Carol. Your work has been done on this earth.

Kathleen Kenney Brown, Savannah, GA

My sincere condolences to the family an friends of Mrs. Horne. Please read John chapter 11 verses 25 an 26 to see the account of Lazarus an how Jesus resurrected him. In the near future it's going to be similar for all of our dead loved ones, seeing all of them resurrected will be a joyous time.

Kay Ferris, Savannah, Ga

To her long time friends and family.........I was privileged to spend many hours with Carol working with her on Project Dawn. She often spoke of "Butler". Bernadette and her cousins. My husband and I made several trips to Guyana and saw, first hand, the medical service that was brought to the Guyanese people by Project Dawn. I know she will be missed by everyone she came in contact with during her lifetime of caring and service to others.

Marceline Preston, Savannah, GA
