Karen I’m sending my condolences to you and your family. I’m praying that God gives you strength and comfort to help you through this difficult time. Your father was a kind man and I’m happy that I had the chance to meet and help take care of him. To ease your heart remember that he is at peace now and no longer suffering. I’m just a call away if you need a listening ear. Sorry for your loss. Love alicia

We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.
