I am so sorry for your loss. It is always so very hard to lose a loved one in death, and our loving Heavenly Father is very aware and understand your painful loss. He will listen to your prayer and pay attention to your pleas for help because He is near to all those calling on him. In the days of your distress, He will answer you. Find comfort that your loved one will live again. (Psalms 86:6-7) Your family and friends have my deepest condolences.

"Comer" as I always knew her was a great friend to all of my family. I don't ever remember a time she wasn't in our life. Her youngest daughter and I grew up together. Comer was a wonderful friend to my entire family. She had a huge heart for others. She helped my grandmother and mother at very difficult times. You could always count on Comer. RIP, Comer. Becky

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe


Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
