I’m very sorry for the sad loss of your beloved husband Ronald, and of your loving father and grandfather. Please accept my deepest sympathy for you and your family in your sorrow. May you find comfort in the promise soon to be fulfilled when “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” - Just imagine a world with no pain or suffering and no death! Our loving God longs for the time when he will resurrect those who have died. - Job 14:14, 15 Then older ones will return to the days of their youth but with good health as Job 33:25 assures us! Please look at the web site as right now on the home page is the article Is this life worth living? In it is the comforting topic: When a loved one dies. Sincerely Yours, Cindy
