    To the family I am sorry for your loss. I know this is a hard time so I wanted to share a comforting scripture with you. Acts 24:15 talks about a time when you will be able to see your dead loved ones again. This is a hope we receive from god. During this time of grief you can turn to him for help. I am sorry again.
