  13. Pat and Arnold,
    Words are not enough to comfort and ease your pain in the loss of Mitch, but know that you are in our prayers and will keep you close in our hearts.

  14. My sympathies to the Jarvis family. I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s no way to really describe the pain one feels when he or she loses a loved one in death. Feelings of sadness and grief can be so overwhelming during this time of mourning. However, comfort from the scriptures can give you hope. John 5:28,29 speaks of the promise of the resurrection hope. What this can mean for your family is a real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones at a time when ‘death will be no more.’ (Revelation 21:4) May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time.

  15. Janet, Hannah, Aunt Patsy, and Uncle Arnold. I wish I knew what to say. But I love all of you and I have so many good memories of Mitch. As children we were all forced to be together due to our family connection. Whether we liked it or not! But I wouldn’t trade the memories for anything in the world. Please know I am here for you. Much Love, Honey Heart

  16. Patsy, Arnold and family,

    May God sustain you in this difficult time. Our prayers and
    thoughts are with you. Love,

  17. Pat and Arnold, I was saddened to hear of your loss. There is nothing I can say to ease your pain, but please know I am thinking of you and my prayers are with you and your family.
