Alice Christine Waldrop, age 80, of Orlando, passed away Wednesday, April 10th, 2013. Alice was born in Big Stone Gap, VA on April 17, 1932, the daughter of the late Cleo (Shelton) and Louie Reach. She was employed as a bookkeeper and member of Tabernacle Baptist Church Orlando, Super Seniors, Home League of Salvation Army, Retired RSVP Seniors Volunteer Program.
She leaves to cherish her memory, daughter, P.J. Waldrop, of Orlando; two sisters, Anna Reach, of Georgia; and Marilyn Layman, of Virginia. The family will be receiving friends at Tabernacle Baptist Church, located at 6000 W. Colonial Drive, Orlando on Friday, April 19, 2013 from 12:00 until 1:00p and from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. The funeral service will be held at the church at 10:00 am on Saturday, April 20th, with Pastor Steve Ware officiating. Interment will be at Chapel Hill Cemetery following the service.
Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. Losing a love one in death is the most painful experience a family will ever have to cope with, because it was never to be part of Jehovah God plans for mankind, it was the penalty for disobedience.-Genesis 2:16,17. God loves us so much that we were created with the desire to live forever, not to die.-Ecclesiastes 3:11. One day your sorrow will turn into joy, when Jehovah grants his son, Jesus Christ the power of the holy spirit; to raise all those sleeping in death, back to life with the prospect of eternal life on the paradise earth, reuniting them with their families.-John 5:28,29; 11:38-44; Luke 23:43. Please read these scriptures in your Bible for added comfort during this time of grief.-Isaiah 66:13.
I was saddened to hear that Alice had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:
Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”
Also at John 5:28, 29: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.
