Beck/Tarver Family

We, the Pastor, Officers and Congregation of Oak Missionary Baptist Church offer our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences on the passing of Mother Lila Leatrice Tarver.

From the pain of the flesh, we must let go and humbly submit to our Creator and Sustainer who has seen fit to call our sister home. But in our spirit, we can shout Halleluiah for she has completed her assignment and is on her journey home. So we look forward to that Great Gettin Up Morning when we shall see our beloved sister again.

There will be no more pain, suffering or crying. For the Word says, And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:4
