    I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Ariel Leach. There will come a time when death and mourning will be no more. (Revelations 21:3,4) This is what our loving God, Jehovah has promised. We have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29) May those verses bring you some comfort in your time of mourning.

    I have many fond memories of Ariel from a Wednesday bible study. I will really miss her. And her sweet smile. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

    Ariel. A lady pure of heart, kindness in abundance and appreciation which knew no bounds. Her time in Jacksonville was short for those of us who knew her and loved her. Ariel’s soul left earth on the Feast Day of The Holy Guardian Angels to join in Their celebration in heaven. Only those invited can attend, you see, so it was with great joy Ariel was greeted by those loved ones who had gone before, all the saints she held devotions to, and of course, The Infant Jesus. We will miss her smiling face but we will never forget it. We may not see her, but she can see us and I, for one, will feel her presence with me always.
