Mr. Terry
   Posted Sat December 08, 2018
To The Family,
As a volunteer minister I read obituary columns on a regular basis. No words however kindly meant, can sooth your pain away. We hope the love around you, memories, and heartfelt prayers of those who mourn with you, help you through today. May you, in time, also find some comfort in knowing that God has promised to "swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8) Furthermore, God's Word the Bible states that a great resurrection is going to take place in the very near future. (John 11:25; Acts 24:15) Until then, may these promises from God and His Son Jesus Christ, give you peace and calm your aching hearts.

With deepest sympathy,
Mr. Terry, a volunteer minister
