I am truly sorry to read of the passing of your loved one, Thomas. He will be missed. Death was never a part of God's original plan for mankind. Sadly due to the disobedience of Adam in the Garden of Eden we all inherited sin and death as recorded at Romans 5:12. Lovingly Our Grand Creator extends to us all the hope again of everlasting life as recorded at John 3:16,36. This hope will be made a reality by means of God's Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Once more I am very sorry for your loss.

To the family of Mr. Theisen, Im so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you must feel. I have found comfort in scriptures like Job 14:14,15 which remind me that God cares so deeply for us that he yearns for the day when he will bring us back to life on earth (John 5:28, 29). These words fill me with the hope of seeing again the ones that I have lost. I hope that these words bring you comfort as well.

I knew Tom pretty well, I remember picking him up from home many times and taking him to work at night and then picking him up the next morning because I am not sure if Chris drove at this time and I believe Susan had to work early in the morning. Either way I got to know him and he was a great man to know. He will be missed.
