Pen from the President

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. - Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT

Welcome to the New Year of 2014

As your President and your fellow colleague, I wish to take this moment to wish each one of you a truly blessed, safe, and prosperous new year.

During 2013, The Virginia Morticians’ Association family weathered many challenges of life. The angel of death escorted a few of our members and extended family members to glory; sickness visited many homes of our association; while others faced trials and tribulations in their business.
Through all of those ups and downs, WE are still here and blessed! God has found favor on each of us individually and collectively.
We are praying for and claiming a great and successful 2014. May we continue to “Unify to Achieve Excellence” in all phases of our living. Increasing your “family time”, growing your business, and making a difference in your community, should be your goals.
I am asking that we unite in a special New Year Day prayer for our association this day, while thanking God for his blessing in 2013. Remember to join us and promote our VMA Annual Prayer Day, January 12, 2014.
Happy New Years, VMA!
Barry D. Robinson
