    Uncle Vere,
    God called your name so quietly that only you could hear
    No one heard the foot steps coming and angels drawing near
    No more pain for you to endure, just the warmth of god’s embrace
    It broke our hearts to loose you ,but you are in a better place
    Rest in peace until we meet again
    Love Andrew Grant , Gail Grant , Elsie Mapp and Peggy

    To the family of Vere Walcott

    Dear Lord, please comfort them in their grief,
    Love them, lift them, give relief
    For the loss they’ve suffered, sadness felt;
    Make this sorrow slowly melt.

    Lord, let happy memories ease,
    Creating peace like a gentle breeze,
    And as you help them make it through.
    Draw them closer, Lord, to you.

    Sincere condolences on your loss.
    May he rest in peace.

    My Brother Vere Walcott I met while he was attending Zion Bible institute in East Providence, Rhode Island. I am from Providence Rhode Island and was attending Faith School of Theology in Brooklin, Maine. He was a true Child of God and His testimony of Salvation in Christ Jesus was sure. He invited me to go back to the islands with me but my calling to take the Gospel was going on another direction. I just noticed that he died, he passed to live again forever because he gave his heart to Jesus. So I say to family, friends and the world. If you open your heart to Jesus Christ and let Him forgive you of all your sins. John 3:16. Vere I won’t say good bye because I will see you again! It is the True Word of the Almighty God. Sincerely, Gail Snead, Warwick, Rhode Island
