Celebrating the life of Joretta Reynolds
Thank you for signing Joretta Reynolds's Guestbook
2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11; God "is very tender in affection (very compassionate) and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

My memories of Ms. Joretta are from my childhood I remember she would write out checks for my grandfather and he would sign them for his bills this is back in the late 50's and early 60's..she was a wonderful friend to many and loved by everyone who knew her. I am deeply sorry to read of her passing. She will be remembered by many who lived in Timmonsville and I believe she lived a life for the Lord and know she is in his loving arms now and for all time. Rest in Peace my sweet friend.
