    The Clergy Family Information Center of The African Methodist Episcopal Church express profound sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your loved one has who transitioned from this earthly life to their heavenly home.

    May knowing that others share the loss you bear be a comfort to you now and in the days, ahead. In your quiet and solitude, as you reflect over their life and labors, we pray that you will find comfort and peace in the still small voice of God saying, “Lo, I’m with you even until the end of the world.”

    “But for a moment the trials and crosses, weariness, troubles, and tears,
    When we have passed through the valley of shadows, Then, oh, what glory appears!”

    In sympathy and prayer,
    Ora L. Easley, International Administrator, Clergy Family Information Center
    African Methodist Episcopal Church

    Who can find a virtuous mother-in-law? I did! Words cannot define the love I have for “Ma.” And her love toward me was priceless. She loved me as a daughter and she will always hold a special place in my heart. I rejoice in knowing I’ll see her again in the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, who is the Christ.
