Condolences for the family of “Diane Jones Whitehurst”

Condolence from Tammy Wilds (UGMS) on March 15th, 2017 6:34 pm

Jacob and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. Talking with you, you always had such kind words of your wife and even though I never knew her I felt as if I did. I knew that the two of you shared a very special bond and that you loved her dearly. I know that she will be missed by you but those wonderful memories that you all shared will carry you through these times when you simply think you can go no further.
You are and will continue to be in my prayers!

My Beloved Pastor D
Just listen to your sermon on sanctification; remembering always the seeds of ministry, faith and prayer that you planted in my life in 2004 . You taught me to believe in God promises of yea and amen, as a man think it in his heart so is he, you help me name my first child, we broke bread together spiritually and naturally, I sang on the praise team beside you, The women’s conference in Mannheim-speaking in tongues and leading Dre to Christ after he caught the HOLY GHOST..You and Pastor J tested your fruit by having me preach while I was five months pregnant… since 2014 I’ve been a
Minister..calling/texting you over the years to learn from your wisdom.. people are in your life for reason season or lifetime.. I’m eternally thankful for the reason season and lifetime blessings I’ll reap because of the life Pastor Diane Whitehurst lived in and for Christ..I AM YOUR FRUIT THAT WILL REMAIN!

Pastor J, Julius, Sherrell Lyle, Armena, beloved grandchildren and family…We Pray Gods love abide much more in you during this time of loss to Strengthen and Give Peace that Surpasses all understanding.. Love you all.

Condolence from Nattie Diaz on February 11th, 2021 10:42 pm

I’m so sorry to hear the news about D. I met D. back in 1994 when my husband and I lived in Germany. She was hairdresser and I loved when she styled my hair which everyone complemented it. I thank God for her wisdom on how she skillfully won me to Christ with love and patience . she is the reason why I gave my life to Christ and continue to serve him to this day. I know she is with the lord . I have been looking for her on Facebook for years but saddens me to know that she’s no longer here with us. Thank you pastor Jacob Whitehurst for being an excellent husband and friend! God bless you,
Nattie Diaz
