To the Family, I'm sorry for your loss and send my condolences. Losing a loved one is one of the hardest times in a family's life. Always know that others care. Most important God cares. He has promised a time when he will "swallow up death forever, and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8). Remember all the joyful times you all spent together with John and cherish them forever in your hearts. My prayers are with your family.
