    Dear Family, My thoughts and prayers go out to your family during this very difficult time. Jesus Christ will soon take away our last enemy, which is death, and soon we will be able to welcome our loved ones back when he resurrects ones to perfection for life everlasting. May you continue to draw comfort from the "God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3).
