  • I was very sorry to read of your loss. I know it's hard to be comforted at a time like this. I just wanted to share two scriptures from the Bible that really helped me when my Grandfather passed away. They are Revelation 21:3,4 which speaks of a time when death will be done away with & John 5:28,29 that reassures us that those who die are in God's memory and we have the hope of seeing them again. I truly hope you will find comfort in these verses.

  • David was such a patient person, always willing to help in any way. I miss running around the corner and asking him "just one more question". Psalm 116:15
