To the family and friends of Mrs. King always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4) it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of all comfort be with you all. For more on the wonderful resurrection hope please visit and type in resurrection in the search tab.

I just don’t have words to explain my sadness at the passing of my high school friend, and work friend. She was always smiling, and I’m glad that when we talked I would always say said something to make her laugh. She will surely be missed. I send my condolences to her family, and pray for your comfort in the upcoming days. Denise is resting in the arms of God. Shalom my friend.

My condolences to her sons, she loved her boys & were so proud of them❤️

Brian and Chris, Your mom was truly special and made a difference as an Antioch Greeters. She would brighten my day whenever she spoke of you with so much love. I didn’t know her before she joined the Greeters Ministry but after she joined, I always noticed her and the wonderful Joy and Love she shined with. She was a blessing to know and will truly be missed. Thank you for sharing her with us. For me personally, she walked as an example and without a word, I knew she was a servant of our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus. I’m so glad our paths crossed. Matthew 25:23 (KJV) 23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
