BERNICE CORNETT, 1918-2008

My grandmother passed away last night, April 16. She was 90 years old. Granny had been in a care facility for the last few months, a situation she was certainly not happy with, but she was unable to function without assistance. As a 16 year old she married my grandfather Oliver in 1934. They had four children together and were married for 57 years until his death in 1991. She was a faithful Christian and has gone to be with her Lord.

As the preacher in the family I've been asked to do the funeral, which is an honor, but also a challenge. Keep us in your prayers.

Our condolences and prayers to you and your whole family. We are blessed by the fellowship and example of faithful saints who are "faithful unto death." You have our prayers as you remember the blessing your family enjoyed in her and the comfort of her final victory. (1 Thess. 4; 1 Cor. 15). For we do not grieve like those who have no hope. . .
