To the family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

It is sadness that I read of Joe's passing. I have known Joe and Janette and family for many years, and have enjoyed the times when Dad, Mom, and I were able to sit on the front porch and enjoy talking about life. I know that he's in a better place, awaiting that great Homecoming some day soon. I pray for Janette and family that God's mercy and love is shown to you all in your time of bereavement. I look forward to that great day when we will all reunite in Heaven, and will sing the songs that the angels cannot sing!
