  1. I’m deeply sorry for your loss. I hope the words found in the bible at Isaiah 25:8 brings comfort. God promises to “swallow up death forever”. No more will we have to suffer heartache for God says he will “wipe away the tears from all faces”. Such a joyous time it will be; reunited with our dead loved ones!

  2. Marlys, Mike and I send our heartfelt condolences to you and your family. You are in our prayers.
