    …for the Lord shall be thine
    everlasting light, and the days
    of thy mourning shall be ended.

    May you remember always
    that, for every sorrow,
    there is comfort…
    for every sadness,
    there is healing…
    for each loss–
    the promise of new life.
    With Sympathy,
    The Mike Sluder Family
