Forever friend always looked out for me
Elder Ray, please know our hearts and prayers are with you and the family at all times. May the Lord give you peace in knowing he has Hero with him. Love You Lele & Wayne
My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering.
Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21: 3,4
He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” 1 – Corinthians 15:26
It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones.
We ” do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! ” 1 Thessalonians 4:13
love from a stranger,
