    Allowing Bible scripture to say it for us: (Jesus) a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. Surely he can borne our griefs and carry our sorrows. Isa.53:3,4. Song of Songs 8:6,7 (BrideGroom) Wear me as a ring around your heart, as a ring on you hand. Love is as overpowering as death, devotion is a unyielding as the grave. Love’s flames are flames of fire, flames that come from the Lord. 2 Cor. 13:14 May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and bring you comfort. (remember, those in Christ) shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord. Ps118:17 We love you and will keep you in our prayers during this trying time.

    To All the Englebright Family
    Mel and I are so deeply sorry to hear the loss of one of the kindest men on this earth. Always positive, supportive, funny, just an all around wonderful friend. When we moved here from Chesapeake, Ed took us in, showed us the ropes of where we lived in our new area. The day that sticks in my mind was his unselfish but grueling task of helping us put up a fence all around our property for a horse. Which later came a cow, named LuLu that he gave to us… cow had a. Bonus.. she had a calf named MOO. I believe Ed knew they had a good home, and this was part of his generosity and kind Heart. We had so many good times, will miss him deeply even though we did not get to see him after he moved to Oxford. But was so happy for him to see a wonderful lady in his life at the time named Judy. God Bless All of you and may He give you peace and wrap His arms around you at this difficult time Much Love, Nita and Mel
