  • To Patti, family and friends of Carl Yarnold we send our heartfelt condolences. Death as we know often strikes quickly but we suffer through it as in slow motion. Please know that Jehovah God knows your pain and assures you of his continuous help. At l Peter 5 and verse 7 he ask you to “throw on our anxiety on him because he cares for you.” So when you feel overwhelmed, pray to him knowing he’s there for you and will help you. Have faith in that promise.
