My sincere condolences to your family for the loss of your loved one. God refers to death is our enemy ; 1 Corinthians 15:26 "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing". God promises at Revelation 21:4, "He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.".

Dear Marge and family, Mike and I are so saddened by the loss of Hial. He was such a kind and caring man. So happy we were able to enjoy the train ride in Arkville together this past summer. He will be missed. God Bless. Mike and Barb Beverley
