I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to you. I know the pain of a broken heart. Our Heavenly Father feels our pain. Psalms 34:18 assures us that He is near to those broken at heart. He does, however, hold out a promise that in the very near future He will wipe out all tears of sorrow and pain from our eyes and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3-5) He also promises to remember all those in the memorial tombs (graves) and restore them to life. (John 5:28,29) Until those words are fulfilled, may you find much peace and comfort in God and in His promises found in the Holy Scriptures.

To the Bain family, I am truly sorry about the death of your loved one. Family, friends, and thoughts from God's word the Bible can give you comfort at distressing times like this. The Scripture written at Revelation 21:4 tells us that soon Almighty God will wipe out all things that causes tears including death. Also John 5:28&29 states that the resurrection to life will occur, here on a Paradise Earth. All this and more is truly a reality.

Our Lord just took a jewel home to be with him. Mother(Bessie Stone, 95 years old) said, "That little blue car has spread lots of cheer!" Mrs.Bain would get out with the biggest smile and ready for a good time where ever she went. Being a great supporter of First Baptist Boyle and a faithful follower of Boundless Love to gospel singings will be remembered the rest of our lives. You keep on ....keeping on!!! That's the message she has lived in this life. Now, she can rest in Our Lord's Precious Arms!!! Thrilled we got to know her! God's love to all the family, Eddie & Martha Causey Bessie Stone

The Lord opened doorways for us to meet "Mamaw Bain" thru childcare and church connections. Without a doubt one of the kindest, sweetest ladies have met since moved to Cleveland. Will miss seeing her smile, especially from the choir at First Baptist of Boyle. Singing in the best choir ever now!!! Pray the Lord's peace and comfort surround those who loved her, now and in days to come. The honor has been mine, to know this lady.

"Mammaw" Bain was such a special lady-always a smile for all and she truly lived as the wonderful, dedicated Christian she was. She will surely be missed by us all. Definitely heaven's gain! Such a sweet soul-rest in peace.
