    Mrs. Van den Heuvel is in the best possible place to be, in God's memory. Hopefully, we who never got to know her personally will see her in the New Paradise Earth soon to come (Acts 24:15). My sincerest sympathy to you.

    To the family: May the comfort from family and friends strengthen you during this difficult time, and may you find comfort in the words found in the Holy Scriptures: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

    I just read about the recent death of your loved one. The Bible calls death an enemy and that is certainly how it strikes us, as an enemy. Take comfort in knowing that the loving God who created us did not want us to suffer in tears of pain. “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people He will take away from all the earth, for God himself has spoken [it].” Isaiah 25:8. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories as well as these few words, bring you a measure of comfort.

    My sweet wonderful Ray. Loosing "Tet" has been so hard on me. That last night when we moved her to a new room I just new she was going o be in heaven soon and I didn't know how to tell you. I will forever regret that. Please know that your love for each other has been such an inspiration to me, you are truly a man whose love for his wife was so very very real. I love you so much and know that her love will always shine down on you and the "children". Feel her, love her, and live your life knowing how wonderful it still can be. All of my love, Jennifer (Oceanview)
