Condolence & Memory Journal

Tom and Family, You are in our prayers today! It's a strange feeling when someone you've known your entire life, suddenly, is no longer there. I was very sad when my parents moved on to the next realm. But, there are the memories that we have, that we can fall back on. I'm sure that there were many good memories you have of your life with your dad. You will recover from this, I know that I did!! Keep your faith in the Lord. God Bless you all.
P.S. I planned on coming over, but the roads to the North are dicey.

I am sorry about the loss of your loved one, It is time like these that comfort from God' s own can be taken to heart. 1 Peter5:7 says, "while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." Yes,God does care for you in this time of grest sadness.
Not only does he sees your sorrow, but he also has a purpose coming soon, where there will be no more sorrowing, crying or death anymore. Until that time ,please continue to pour out you're cares to God and he will comfort you.
