America Christianity/Religion Church Death Friends Grief

Mabel Combs At Rest

Blessed People, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

In January of 2008, I wrote a column (the first paragraph of which is below) and posted this picture of Pastor Walton Combs and his precious wife, Mabel. Yesterday, the death angel carried away Mabel, and she is now resting in the everlasting arms of Jesus. My prayers and love go out to her family and to the church in Casa Grande.

Rev. Walton Combs and his wife Mabel of Casa Grande, Az. have been active in our churches for decades…and have literally given their lives for the Gospel. Now they are aged, and his health is broken. Today I want to honor these two beautiful people and, by association, all elderly people of God.
