Our deepest condolences to you and your family at this difficult time. May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of times spent together. May you find great comfort in God's promise found at Isaiah 25:8."He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces. and John 5:28: "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". God promises a future time when there will be no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! Our prayers are with you at this difficult time.
