Condolences to the family of Moscelia “Celia” Awtry Ford

    Mother and I send our heartfelt condolences in the loss of Celia. We met Celia many years ago and we lived in nearby neighorhoods and would often run into Celia at the local Publix. I saw Celia last summer when we were dining at the same restaurant; she had recently lost her sister and my brother had passed away suddenly. Celia offered prayers and compassion to me and my family even though she had suffered a great loss herself. We were glad we had Celia as our friend in life–and we will always remember her smile and kindness to us through the years. May Celia rest in eternal peace, in a land where there are no sorrows and the love of God is eternal.
    2 Timothy 4:7-8 King James Version (KJV)
    7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
    8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
