    My prayers and thoughts are with the Rigsby-Johnson family during this most difficult time. It was a blessing to have known Malachi as a school counselor at CWI for his 3 years there! Much love for Jonquayle and Sariryah as they grow missing their brother.

My prayers and love to his family. May God continue to cover you in his love, comfort and peace that only he can provide. Malachi has his wings!

    I am truly sorry for your loss, what really comforted me in my time of loss is the scripture@ Revelation 21:3&4 . Which gives us the wonderful promise of God wiping out every tear from our eyes and death being no more. I hope this promise from Jehovah will truly bring your family much comfort at this time.
