Celebrating the life of Henry Thomas Wagoner, Jr.
Thank you for signing Henry Thomas Wagoner, Jr. 's Guestbook
The Bible states that we "are a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears." The death of a loved one reminds us of that painful truth. Even though that is our reality now, it does not mean that there is no hope. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope even when death overtakes us. This hope is mentioned throughout the Bible since it is one of its primary teaching. Please take comfort in the hope as described by Jesus, the Son of God, at John 6:40, 47. There he encourages your family with these words: " For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day....Most truly I say to you, whoever believes has everlasting life." What a wonderful hope given to us by the Creator. His desire and purpose is the same as it was when he created man. He wants us to live. That purpose has not changed. The resurrection makes it possible for those sleeping in death to benefit when the future resurrection takes place. At that time all tears of grief will become tears of joy. May your family look hopefully to the future as I do. So sorry for your loss.

Hello Wagoner Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you 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 really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5:28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible.
Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor P.D.Walker.
