Please accept our sincere condolences and sympathies during
this most difficult time. While nothing will completely take away
your grief, we have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be
especially comforting where it promises that soon God will
swallow up death forever and wipe away the tears from all
faces. May God comfort all of you and give you peace in the
days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

John and Claudette Lewis
Aunt Alma was the last surviving member of my
Dad's family. It's been many years since I have
seen and talked to her and Uncle Leo. The thought
that she is the end of a generation of our family
is sobering. Claudette and I send our deepest
condolences, praying that God will provide peace
and comfort to the family.
