  1. Dear Keenum Family,
    I am would like to share a comforting Bible message with you. One of the saddest things someone can experience is the death of a loved one. The Bible compares death to Sleep. (Psalm 13:3) Just as a person who is asleep is unaware of what is happening around him, the dead are not conscious of anything. The bible teaches that God can awaken the dead as if from sleep and give them life again. At Acts 14:15 it says “There is going to be a resurrection”. I hope this was a source of comfort for the family.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss! Sue was a very sweet Christian lady and will be missed❤️ I will keep Conley and the family in my prayers!!

  3. Sue was such a sweet lady and dear to many. I will miss not seeing her at church anymore and I’m sorry for your loss. Sue had many friends and will be missed by all!
