My heart goes out to you both, and all your family.
Please find comfort in the words of our Lord as told by Paul, Silas, and Timothy ...We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. ...with the trumpet call of God,the dead in Christ will rise first.1Th 4:14-16

Greg, Beryl, Bruce, and families, I am very sorry to hear of your tragic loss. I am lifting you in prayers and asking for God's Love and Comfort now and in the days ahead. It is always difficult to say good bye to those that leave before us, especially when they are so young.
Nancy and children, I am lifting you in prayers as you move through this time of incredible sadness. May God's undying Love encompass you as you lay to rest your beloved Husband and Father. Blessings upon all of you in this very sad and difficult time.
