Edwards, Caroline's Guestbook

Deepest sympathy for Ms. Caroline's family. We can look forward to the promise at Isaiah 25:8 – “God will swallow up death forever, Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Death is an enemy that separates us from our loved ones. When this promise is fulfilled, we will have the joy of seeing our loved ones resurrected (John 5:28, 29). Then we can enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…forever on earth. (Psalms 37:9, 11)

I am a former coworker and an acquaintance of Kyneesha Edwards and I am saddened by your loss. I didn’t know “Grandma” Edwards but if Ms. Neesha is a fraction of her legacy, that is truly a gift to the world. She must have been a wonderful lady! My sincere condolences!
