|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)|
|Uncle Tom was such a great man in so many ways.|
|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 |
