    My beloved brother will be missed by us all. I rest in faith that you are finally healed by his stripes. I love you always!

  2. I offer my heartfelt sympathy to the family and close friends. Your tears are not unnoticed by the Creator of life. (Psalm 56:8) We learn at Genesis 2:16,17 that it was never God’s purpose that death be a part of our human lives. But God has promised that there will be a resurrection. Jesus Christ himself said: "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29)
