My condolences to the Carter family in the loss of your dear loved one. The pain of grief that death of a loved one brings can sometimes overwhelm us. Our loving God Jehovah knows how we feel and he provides comfort from his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Comfort also can be found in the words at Revelation 21:4; And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.

With deepest, heartfelt feelings, we express our love for you as our dear sister, Lizzie Carter, has been called home by Our God to peace and victory forevermore.

We regret that we did not have the opportunity to know Sister Carter personally, but we are quite sure--due to all of the amazing outpouring of gratitude and superlatives--that she was thoroughly devoted to God, Jesus, and Near River Baptist Church.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

May the Lord Be With You...Always,
