  1. Sheryl, and family, I am so sorry for your loss you have shared some great stories about your Dad and I can see from his picture he was a very happy man. My prayers are with you. Sincerely Di Trask

  2. I am so very sorry for your loss. The Bible gives us comfort and hope. Isaiah 26:19 tells us that our loved ones will come to life again. One day there will be no more death, tears, pain or mourning. (Revelation 21:4,5) May these promises help you endure.

  3. My sincere condolences to the family. May God hold and comfort you in this trying time. The Bible assures us of a hope of seeing our loved ones again at Acts 24:15 which says, "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Under the rule of his Kingdom, the heavenly King Jesus Christ will resurrect untold numbers of people to life here on earth – but under peaceful and righteous conditions.
