We are so very sorry for your loss. We pray that “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus” as you deal with the intense grief that comes with losing your loved one. (Phillipians 4:6, 7) The Bible assures us that God “is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) We look forward with you to the time when we will be able to welcome our loved ones back! (John 5:28, 29)

I am sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Alexander. I work with Val and she has always spoken of him with such admiration for his love and commitment to his family. He has left a wonderful legacy in his son Mark and grandson, Ross. He I am sure was very proud. God has welcomed his son home and he is with the Father. Oh what a day that will be! God give you comfort and peace in the days ahead. In His Love, Beth Dionne
