I am so very sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. He and my father were in Lakewood at the same time last week and we joked about having a race down the hallway. He and dad made plans to get together after they were both out. We were both so shocked to hear he had passed. I pray that the memories you cherish will bring some comfort to you all. God bless.

We would like to express our deepest sympathy over your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss is found 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “Blessed be God….the God of all comfort, Who comforted us in all our tribulation". “Jesus said to her: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.’” John 11:25. It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well.
