    Donna, Randy, and Deborah, so sorry to hear of your dad’s sudden death. It’s never easy when a parent passes, as both Lendon and I can tell you. But, as time passes, you remember all the fun times and funny things that happened together, and that seems to help you along. We did not know your father, but we wanted you to know that we will be remembering you and all the family and friends in your loss, in our thoughts and prayers. Janice & Lendon

    To the family of Mr. Sexton, my sincere condolences for the sudden loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the knowledge that “there is going to be a resurrection” as the Bible confirms at Acts 24:25. Jesus also assured us that soon Randall will “hear his voice” and awaken from his sleep. John 5:28,29. By meditating on God’s promises, may you find real hope and strength. 1Thess. 4:13,14

    Condolence to the Family of W. Randall Sexton,
    It is obvious from the many kind expressions that Mr. Sexton will be sadly missed. I find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed.
    God’s word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8). It is comforting to know that the grief and sorrow we experience is temporary. (Revelation 21:4). Further, recorded at Isaiah 26:19 , “Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust!…..And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”. Because of Jehovah God’s purpose and great love for mankind, the restoration of life is guaranteed!
    As you know, Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles including resurrections. All such miraculous events took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come…….seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
    May Jehovah God continue to bless your family during this difficult time and in the days ahead……

    So sorry to hear of this. When we were all young, my mother took us to visit his mother and her children
    Mother knew that we were kind to the Sextons. We have not visited in a long time, living on opposite sides of Nashville.
