Ms. Spivey was a dear friend of mine. I visited her often in her home on 75th street in Newport News to study the Bible with her and care for her in whatever she needed. She was a sweet and very kind person. Often giving to strangers no matter who they were. I know she believed in Jehovah’s promises outlined in the Bible because we spoke of them often. She would say to me, “if only I was much younger, I would do what you do”. She was so feisty and determined although frail and she would tell me about all her extensive travel experiences with a long time friend, Peggy who passed away before her. She had a memory that would reach deep and was able to recall step by step her journeys in life. Although she had no family close by, we were her family when she was on 75th street. Then she abruptly moved, but I found her again in Poquoson and visited her there. I am glad I had the opportunity to get to know her. I am so sad and will miss her dearly. My condolences to her other family and friends. Please find comfort in God’s sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in his word, the Bible. He is truly a God of comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

Dear Family of Mrs. Spivey,
Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. May you be comforted beyond measure as you grieve your loss. Reflect on these scriptures as solid proof that Almighty God wants us all to be happy.
Soon He will undue all that death has caused. By means of a resurrection to life many who have died will live again right here on this cleansed earth in peace and happiness forever.
(Job 14:14-15, Acts 24:15 & Psalm 37:11,29)
