    to Cindy and Duane,  So  sorry  for your loss.  I was out of state when at your Dad/s passing, or I would have been their.  Will try and get in touch with you. I had Cindy's address, will see if I can find it.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I too have felt the pain of losing some of those I love in death. I hope you are being surrounded by loving family and friends and taking care of yourself during this difficult time. The God of all comfort provides hope for those who have passed away and comfort for those who have survived. We are promised that our loved ones will return to us one day very soon. As Jesus resurrected his friend, Lazarus, and many others, you will see your loved one again. (John 5:28, 29) How the True God longs to do that! (Job 14:14, 15). Until then, may you continue to keep his memory warm in your hearts until you see him happy and healthy again one day very soon. Prayers and thoughts are with you . . . 

    I hope you find the time to be comforted by the  additional information that can be found at
