  1. Sending my condolences to the family of Mr. Richard. He seemed like a very loving family man. May you find comfort in God’s promise of a resurrection for all those in His memory at John 5:28,29. It is a sure hope and glorious event that will happen in the near future at Acts 24:15. Until then, may He rest in peace.
