    The grief that is felt when we lose a loved one may seem unbearable. At such times, we can go to God's word for comfort. God too feels hurt when an individual dies. That is why the encouragement found at Revelation 21:4 assure us that "He will remove sorrow and death will be no more." According to this scripture, there will come a time when those we have lost to death will be brought back by means of a resurrection by the Almighty God. May the family find the comfort that God makes available to all persons.

    We were so sorry to hear of Don's passing. Although we only knew him through all his years he worked for ASI, he was always kind and thoughtful. He will surely be missed by everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with him, his family and friends at this time.

    It is an understatement to say that we are deeply saddened by Don's passing. He will truly be missed by our family. Don always made us feel very special. He was so welcoming, kind, and generous, and so, so capable. He is probably remodeling and decorating heaven! Don loved you, George, and so do we. You were so good for him. We know Our Lord will comfort you and Donald's and your families. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Roberta, Bill, Kevin, and Patrick.
