Prayers & Condolences For:
Curtis A. Mitchell
BY DONNYDO on May 06, 2006
  Bring us, O Lord God, at our last awakening,

into the house and gate of heaven,

to enter into that gate, and dwell in that house where there shall be

no darkness nor dazzling, but one equal light;

no noise nor silence, but one equal music;

no fears nor hopes, but one equal possession;

no ends nor beginnings, but one equal eternity;

in the habitation of thy glory and dominion,

world without end. Amen.


My heartfelt condolences to the Mitchell family. May God give you peace in your heart and strength to carry on.
