We write to express our sincere condolences with you and your family during this your time of grief. We pray you may have strength in the days ahead. May this scripture bring you hope and comfort during this time as it did our family. Isaiah 26:19"Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." That's our loving God's promise. JR
