    So sorry for your lose. May you find comfort from your fond memories. The Bible gives us comfort when it assures us that soon all causes of suffering will end and mankind can enjoy life forever in perfect health. (Pslams 37:11,29; Revelation 21:3,4; John 17:3)
    We can even be reunited with our lost loved ones. (John 5:28,29)
    Please accept my sincere heartfelt condolences.

    Its hard to put into words the meaning of one’s life. At the end you can see all the love he left behind in the form of his Wife and his Children. His life on earth has passed but his soul and love lives on. Rest now be with God.
