  3. To the Coontz family, I read with sadness about John. Please know you have my deepest condolences. As you reflect on the cherished times spent together with him, it will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. Until the day when you share those little things again, may you continue to assure yourself of the resurrection and that neither death nor life nor angels nor governments nor things now here nor things to come nor powers nor height nor depth nor any other creation will be able to separate us from God’s love nor His promises that is through Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:38, 39; John 11:11, 21-26; Matthew 5:5.
