    To the Family of Mother Alberta Dickens,

    We offer our deepest condolences to you in the loss of your loved one. Words seem so inadequate when trying to share our sympathy. However, Gods Word is eternal and assures us that while weeping may endure for a night, God's joy that comes from knowing your loved one is in the amazing presence of God will come in the morning light.

    Dear family and friends, take courage in the midst of your sorrow, and know that God is with you and He will never leave you nor forsaken you.  Please know that our prayers and our deeds of sympathy, mercy and compassion are with you.

    Faith Temple Baptist Church ABC-USA, its pastoral staff, official board and members.
