  • We’re sorry for the loss of your father, Jimmy. He was a kind soul, who worked very hard to support his family that he loved so much. He was blessed to have a beautiful family and a good life as well. I hope the beautiful and loving memories help all of you at this time of sorrow, and that the love you’ve shared with him give you peace knowing he’s lived a long and prosperous life. My father and your father worked together for a long time and remained friends into their later years long after their retirement. Be well and may peace and love be with all of you at this time.

  • I am sorry for your loss and wish to extend my condolences. Death was never part of the equation that God had purposed for us. We were designed and created to live forever. He has promised to eliminate not only death, but all things that cause us any kind of pain and suffering. (Revelation 21:4) Soon the words regarding the resurrection found at John 5:28, 29 will take place and give us opportunity to welcome back our loved ones to a restored paradise earth and live forever. (Psalms 37:29) May these promises that are found in the Bible bring you a measure of hope and comfort.
