GUEST BOOK

I just learned today of Archie's passing. My sincere condolences go to his family. I worked with him at Foodlion many years ago and he was such a blessing to know. He was always so caring to everyone! When he retired from Foodlion, I had no idea he had been sick. After coming to the store a few times and not seeing him, I asked. I was told then that he had been sick and went on disability. He has been truly missed in this store! I pray the Lord brings comfort to his family. He was a wonderful friend to everyone who knew him.

Dear grieving family, I am truly sorry for your great loss and would like to express my condolences. It is my sincere hope you find comfort in knowing that God has promised to "swallow up death forever" (Isaiah 25:8) and that he will “resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away.”
