  1. Dear Sutton family, one of the saddest things someone can experience is the death of a loved one. Did you know the Bible compares death to sleep? (Psalms 13:3) Just as a person who is asleep is unaware of what is happening around him, the dead are not conscious of anything. There is a promise of hope in the Bible. Our loving God has promised to awaken the dead, as if from sleep, and give them life again. Acts 24:15 says, “There is going to be a resurrection.” The bible offers comfort for those who are grieving and I hope this brings you comfort as well.

  2. Dear Mrs Sue, Dale, Wade & Brian,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Remembering you all in my thoughts & prayers.
    I think of you all very often & have for years wondering how things are with you. Bro. Sutton is the first Pastor that I really remember. I was saved & baptized under his ministry in 1968 at Watchman Baptist Church in Mayfield, Kentucky. Bro. Sutton might not have been big in stature, but he was a “giant” in my eyes & left a lasting impression in my heart. I remember Mrs. Sue being a sweetheart & the boys, well…what can I say, boys will be boys, but enjoyed them as well. Your family has a special place in my heart.
    I’m sure there’s nothing I can say that you haven’t heard before.
    Just remember that God’s grace is sufficient for everything we face in this life. I know that Jesus is coming soon & very soon we’ll see Bro. Sutton again.
    Love & prayers to all!
    ❤ 🙏🏻
