    I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your loved one. I lost my father last year and something that comforts me is that Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping. (John 11:11-14) I hope that your family will find comfort in this too.

    I want to let you know that your family and those who knew Mr. Maxwell are all in my thoughts and prayers. It is difficult during times such as this. I lost my Dad in 2002, although I hadn’t met Mr. Maxwell, his wonderful daughter Mary, has shared his legacy with me through her love and kindness. May you all feel peace, healing and comfort as the Lord has brought a good man home to Him and multiplied Mr. Maxwell trough his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
