I'm greiving the loss of Mrs. Whittaker. She taught me piano for 5 years. She was so full of love and faith. Her investment in me shaped my entire life. She taught me to love music. She taught me to improvise hymns which allowed me to travel the nation as a pianist with Life Action Ministries where I met my wife. She suggested that I consider piano tuning and I am now a Registered Piano Technician and run my own company in GA. My entire life has been impacted by her love and advice. The last time I was in Class City I had the chance to tune Mrs. Whittaker's piano and then sit and visit with her. I thanked her for her investment in me. I'm so glad I had that chance. I will always miss her. But I know I will see her again because I know she knew Jesus at a depth that I long to know him.
With Heartfelt Grief,
HS

Ethel was always a beautiful person. It was a pleasure to have known her. She sang at my wedding 57 years ago.

We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
