Ms. Sherry, I am so sorry for the loss of your Daddy. I cannot even begin to imagine the immensity of your grief. I know that he was ill for a long while, and I can only hope that the end to his suffering brings you and others who love him a little bit of comfort. You will be with him again on the other side, and I have no doubt that he's right there with y'all until then. Sending lots of love and light to all of the Mixon family.

Our deepest sympathy in the passing of your Daddy. Losing a parent is always so difficult. Please find peace knowing he is no longer suffering. Always remember, he will always be with you, smiling down on you, always proud of the woman you have become! We are so sorry you had to say goodbye, only for now!

As your family cherish the memories of your dear loved one, Ernest, know that according to the Holy Scriptures, those whose hope is in Almighty God are happy.

When the righteous publicly declare with their mouth that God’s Son is Lord, and exercise faith in their heart that God raised him up from the dead, they will be saved. With the heart one exercises faith for righteousness and with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation. Romans 10:10.

My sincerest condolences to your entire family and dear friends.
