  5. I’m so sorry to hear about Roberts passing, he was truly one of the “good guys”! My condolences to the family during this most difficult time. Bob

  6. Dear family,

    My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering.

    Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21: 3,4

    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” 1 – Corinthians 15:26

    It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones.

    We ” do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! ” 1 Thessalonians 4:13

    Love from a stranger,
