I was thinking about the awesome childhood friends I had in Phenix City. Tonight I looked up Ricky. I am saddened to know Ricky has passed but filled with joy to know he had an active faith in Christ. I will see him again. Wow, he was so young. I know his family was burdened at the lost. I hope God strengthens you even now. If there is anything I could do or say I would even now. I encourage you simply to give your all to the Lord. Keep your focus and when it seems hard then hold fast. P.K.

I know Sue, Niki and the Bess family and friends have saddened hearts because of losing Ricky recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. So I want to share this beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18) promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. ." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. (Psalm 34:18) The Bible also enlightens us at Hebrews 2: 14 "so that through his (Jesus) death, he (Jesus) might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil." For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt It has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. (John 5: 28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." It is my prayer these scriptures will give you comfort in your grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. The Bible offers us a hope of seeing our loved ones again at John 5:28,29. It also promises a time when death and pain will be done away with at Revelation 21:4. I hope these help you find comfort.

Death leaves a heartache
no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no

We feel like we are all losing a brother. Through the many arguments we had I still loved you dearly. Our life has been completely changed since meeting you 10 years ago, no one could light up a room the way you could! At work and in our hearts you will be truly missed. I love you brother

As a much older cousin who lives far away, it has been many years since I've seen Ricky C. He was a sweet child and young man. Barbara kept me up with Ricky so I feel the loss even though I haven't seen him in so long, I grieve with you but also rejoice that he is reunited with Hosea C and many more family and friends. Nothing takes away the loss of his daily presence but there is comfort that we will see him again.

I want to offer my condolences to the Bess family and friends. It is a painful thing to loss a love one in death. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died(John 11:35). It Pains our Creator, too, and he promise to get rid of this enemy, death(1 Corinthians 15:26). He also promises to awaken our love one from asleep in death(Isaiah 26:16). I hope these words give you comfort.
