Obituary Notice


Yesterday quietly passed away at the age of 24 hours old. Yesterday was born October 18, 2012 at 1200 AM and expired October 19, 2012 at 1200 AM. Yesterday was a resident of every country in the world. Yesterday will be remembered as being very generous in affording opportunities to do good to all men, especially those of the household of faith. Yesterday leaves behind every individual in the world. Yesterday is survived by two distant cousins; Today and Tomorrow. Yesterday had been looked forward to by so many people with great expectations.John Wayne once remarked that “Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday." The Apostle Paul spoke of yesterday when he said, “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without redeeming the time (yesterday)." LBJ commented, “Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose."  Della Reese spoke of yesterday, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow may be for us and it may not." Many treasured yesterday and will remember it for quite some time.  ” Although great effort at times will be exercised to restore yesterday, it will not be brought back.

Services will not be conducted. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to eternity. "Laying up in store  for themselves  a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life." (1 Timothy 6:19, KJV)
