Celebrating the life of Grover Cleveland "G.C." Odom, Jr.
Thank you for signing Grover Cleveland "G.C." Odom, Jr.'s Guestbook
I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of All Comfort be with you during this difficult time. I have personally found comfort in the promise of 1st Corinthians 15:26 where it states that soon death will be brought to nothing. Then we will have the prospect of being reunited with our loved ones right here on earth(John 5:28,29).
I truly hope this brings you comfort and peace. My deepest sympathies for you all
