May this family be ever blessed with the kindness, comfort and love that Ms Bernice “Bunny” showed to anyone in her presence or welcomed into her home....everything she did was done in love. My deepest condolences, may God provide you all with a peace and calming that surpasses all understanding. She has truly earned her wings! This woman, I know first hand did everything with love.

My condolences to the Gantt family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
