RIP my old friend and many Blessings to the family, “ Another leaf has fallen, another soul has gone. But still we have God’s promises, in every robin’s song.”
Just a little while longer and we will see our brother again! What a glorious day that will be. To the family hold on to this Scripture Revelation 21:4.
To the Wilkins Family: I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our Dear Brother Friend. Please keep the memories of him alive, they can help to ease your pain of sorrow. Brother Wilkins is asleep in death, waiting to hear Jesus voice, calling him out of the grave, ( John 5: 28 & 29) I really will miss him but I know that I will see him again if I stay faithful to the end. the Wilkins family stay faithful also and we all will be there to welcome him back.
Love you all and will Love you all forever
Death is a enemy and it saddens our hearts. But remember our God Jehovah have given us a hope and promise of better times. A world were Death wil be no more ,where we will not experience sickness, mourning, pain. Revelation 21:1-4
