    To The Family, May you have peace and comfort during this most grievous time. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 refers to death as the, "last enemy." Almighty God is going to eliminate this enemy in the future. That same scripture says, it is going to be destroyed forever .What a wonderful future blessing when death is going forever. May you continue to have peace and comfort during this most difficult time.

I send my condolences to the family. He loved his family very much. I pray that you will look God for comfort and understanding. He will see you through. God bless all of your.
