Celebrating the life of Ellis Kelly Cameron
Thank you for signing Ellis Kelly Cameron 's Guestbook
Having heard of your most recent loss, Mr. Ellis lived a full and happy life.
I want to leave a brief post. I too well know the grief of losing love ones and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has helped me to deal with such loses, is the wonderful resurrection spoken of in the Bible book of Job 14:13-15 and the promise resurrection spoken by Christ Jesus.for our comfort, at John 5:28,29 & John 11:41-44. I hope that when you are feeling up to it, you will take a few minutes, and look up these Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also I hope. that this note finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
