    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. We look forward to the time when our enemy, death, will be done away with and God will restore our dead loved ones back to life here on earth under much better conditions. (1 Corinthians 15:26; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29) Until that time may your memories, prayer, and the comfort from family and friends help you through this very difficult time.
