Nanny I love you so much. The twenty one years I have known you was such a blessing. My daughter and I just found out the news today. You are free of pain now and cured with the Lord. Please give my brother my love. Nana I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for treating me like family! You were always cooking and trying to feed me. Your cooking was absolutely the best. You were so wise, kind, loving and always followed your heart no matter what. You stuck with your gut and always so straight forward. I really loved that about you. So blessed and grateful over the years that you continued to stay in my life and always there for me. You would call me to make sure that I was okay when you were alone. Your respect and dedication to me and my wellbeing was pure love. You had the most beautiful soul and always did the right thing. I am so Thankful for you touching my life and staying in it until the end. You took me in as family accepting me no matter what. Forever blessed and grateful. You can rest now and your long journey on earth touched so many. God Bless you for being such a great and beautiful person. I will always carry your lessons and wisdom with me.

To The Kennedy Family: Please accept my sincere condolence on your loss. The Bible can bring you much hope and comfort at a time like this, because Almighty God promises that soon He will end death, sickness and sorrow (Revelation 21:3,4). Also, our loving Heavenly Father has made arrangements through His Son, Christ Jesus, to bring back to life "all those in the memorial tombs" (John 5:28,29). May you find the strength to hold on by meditating on these beautiful promises from Jehovah God.

My most sincere condolences to your family during this very difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 are words that can give you all a peace of mind in knowing that our Heavenly Father knows our pain when we loose someone and he will be there to help us through now and in the days ahead. Psalms 37:11,29 is a future hope that will soon take place and times like this will be a thing of the past.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My thoughts and prayers to the family. Opal was a wonderful and kind woman. She always made me feel welcome in her home when I first met her and Otis back in 1972
as a young girl. As a friend to Juanita, I would visit their home often and sometimes overnight. Opal would cook (amazing) dinners and sit with us and share conversation.
Opal has left an everlasting imprint on me and I will remember her fondly always.

There are never any words to comfort the loss of a loved one.Man's word fail us every-time.
Hold the memories in your heart.It is only through Jesus we find any comfort.
Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I want to offer my condolences to the (Washington) Kennedy families and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death,regardless of how long they have lived. Our heavenly Father of tender mercies has given us comfort through the scriptures. He calls death an enemy and promised to remove it forever__ Isaiah 25:8”He will swallow up death forever”. He, too, has given the promise to bring our love one back to life from asleep in death in the memorial tombs__ Hosea 13:14“From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; from death I will recover them.” I hope these words give you comfort and hope.
