    So very sorry for your loss. At times like this, it’s hard to find the right words. John was a good man who loved his wife and family. Hold dear those memories too comfort you the rough your grief.

    Cindy & Family, I am so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. Please know you all are in my thoughts and continual prayers. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

    Your loss is the gain of our Father in Heaven. To be gone on this earth is to be present with the Lord. Glory to God John is healed. I pray God comforts you all in this time of sadness. Praying for you all. He is Healed.
