Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and ?death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.?(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy."

"I feel such profound devastation at the loss of my brother. I always felt that no matter what, he?d be there for me....he was truly my champion. The void that remains seems insurmountable. He was the most generous, least judgmental person I have ever had the privilege of knowing. ?Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand ?. Sue & Stanley Samdal"
