Celebrating the life of Phillip Stanley Andrews
Thank you for signing Phillip Stanley Andrews's Guestbook
To The Family,
I would like to offer my sincere condolences in the passing of your loved one. When death strikes it hurts so much that we may ask, ''does God really care about us?'' The answer is a resounding yes. God truly loves and care about us.(1 Peter 5:7) God also knows that death is extremely painful for us. This is one of the reasons why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to the earth to provide the ransom sacrifice to redeem mankind from sin and death. (John3:16) In fact, when walking the earth Jesus stated, "I am the resurrection and the life." This powerful statement by the Lord Jesus provides a genuine, guaranteed hope for us. In the very near future, Jesus will use his God-given power to awaken those who has fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28,29) When Mr. Phillip Stanley Andrews is brought back to life, he will not have any health problems whatsoever, and he will have the precious opportunity of being with his wife of many years, Phyllis, and living forever in God's world. I hope that these scriptural thoughts bring you comfort at this most difficult time. May God bless you.

May you find comfort in your husband's memories, and strength in the companionship of the life you shared together. Your tears are not unnoticed by the Creator of Life and I certainly hope that the help God can give at this time will make a difference. Although I have not personally met all your family. I pray the tender mercy that God has always shown be with you now so you will know that you are not alone and may the prayers of others help in some small way to bring you strength and comfort and courage each day. Soon God will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord will certainly wipe the tears from all faces Isaiah 25:8
