Dear Hyatt Family: Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in the words written at Acts 24:15, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will also do away with our enemy, death.(1Corinthians 15:26) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Gary and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
