Following the recent funeral of Sis Claristine Wallace, mother of our Head Deacon Bro Denroy Lindsey, the Lindsey Family would like to express their appreciation via the following letter to the church. It reads:

Dear Holloway Church,
We the Lindsey family would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to our church family at Holloway, for their prayers of comfort, messages of love and support and the many cards and flowers that were sent our way in our time of grief for our dear Mum. These indeed strengthened our determination to hold fast to the blessed hope that if we are faithful, we will see our loved ones again, where there will be no more pain or parting. Let us continue in this unity of spirit.

Let us continue to keep the family in prayer at this time.

It is with regret that we announce that Vanessa Mc Daniels’s mother recently passed away back home in Jamaica. Sis Vanessa McDaniel is an active member of Holloway’s Senior Connect Club. We ask that you keep her and her family in your prayers at this difficult time.
