  1. My heartfelt condolences to the family. During this time of grief and sorrow, the Bible gives us hope and comfort. “Your dead ones will live…They will rise up”. -(Isaiah 26:19) ; Our redeemer Jesus Christ says at John 5:28, 29 “the hour is com-ing in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life….” So we look forward to the time when we will see our loved ones again in paradise. May the comfort from the scrip-tures bring you peace, and the precious memory of your love one brings you joy.

  2. So sorry to hear about your brother. I remember you having such a nice family. Know he will be missed.

    I was a good friend of Virginia’s.
