    I am saddened by the loss of my 1st Cousin Jerry. Our families visited a lot when we were young, Jerry and I were close in age ,so we went to high school together. I didn’t know your Dad had gotten I’ll and I’m so sorry! Please take care and try to stay in touch.

  2. CandleImageMy deepest sympathies to the sons. Your Dad is my first cousin and I have fond memories of us growing up.

  3. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13, 14

    Moreover, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant* about those who are sleeping in death,+ so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope.+ 14 For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again,+ so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.+
