Celebrating the life of Mr. Jay Michael Shelor
Thank you for signing Mr. Jay Michael Shelor's Guestbook
So very sorry for the deep sorrow you are experiencing in your hearts, due to the loss of Jay. We were not designed to accept death as a normal part of life which makes saying goodbye so extremely difficult. (Romans 5:12) Death is called our enemy at 1 Corinthians 15:26. May the promises found in God's word that soon he, Jehovah, will make all things new here on the earth and that you will see your loved one again, bring you a measure of comfort and peace this day to carry you through. (Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29)
