    To Conrad’s family, I am so sorry to hear the news. I truly loved helping care for him over the last year. He was such a wonderful man and he truly loved his family with all his Heart. I had the pleasure of spending much time with him and sharing many laughs and heart felt moments. I earned his trust, and gained a friendship that I will forever cherish. God has given him his wings, he will be missed but always remembered. God bless you all, you are in my prayers.

    Our hearts aches in knowing you are mourning the recent loss of your dear loved one. We hope you can find comfort in the words found in Holy writing, in Psalms 9:9 which reads: “ 9 Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?
