Memories Timeline


  1. My sincere hope is that the words of Acts 24:15 are comforting to this family: “There is going to be a resurrection.” His means that all who loved and adored Shirley have a real hope of being reunited with her when God’s Kingdom comes and his will is done on earth. (Matthew 6:10). Try for a minute to envision life in paradise where no one will feel pain, grow old, or die. Try to imagine Shirley surrounded by happy, healthy, peaceful people throughout all eternity.

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
    Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  3. Dear Holt Family: Our loved ones make us feel valued. Losing them, can make us feel unimportant to everyone, including Almighty God. Others may try to comfort us, but sometimes we are inconsolable. We may even start to feel that we are not even valued by Almighty God, but nothing could be further from the truth. Almighty God never feels that way about us. Each human is so important to God that He allowed His Son (Jesus Christ) to die in our behalf, thus providing a ransom, and giving us the opportunity to live forever in paradise on earth in the near future. The son of God, Jesus Christ, further showed us how important each one of us are to him. He gave the following illustration at Luke 12:6, 7: “Five sparrows sell for two coins of small value, do they not? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Have no fear; you are worth more than many sparrows.” …… The sparrow was the smallest and cheapest bird used for food in Bible days. A person could buy two sparrows for one assarion coin, equal to about 45 minutes wages. But for two assarion coins (about 90 minutes in wages) a person could buy, not four, but five sparrows. The 5th sparrow would be thrown in as though it had no value at all. Almighty God, Jehovah is his name, (Psalms 83:18) and his Son, Jesus Christ do not think or feel that we are the ‘5th sparrow’.  All of us are precious in God’s eyes and extremely valuable.  If Almighty God chose too, he could even tell us the number of hairs we have on our head. Thus letting all of us know every single person on this earth is important to God….. and so is Shirley Faye Holt!
