The loss of a dear family member, is a difficult experience for the family. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that the family can experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way. May you all find comfort as you pour your hearts in prayer to Jehovah, “the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials”. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

Dear Bresiger. Family, you could have knocked me over with a feather when. I opened the paper and saw we lost TONY! Such a shock! Sonny had just visited with. TONY a week ago at the barbershop and came home and told me they had chatted. TONY was always happy and friendly, God must have needed another big teddy bear for. His little angels, at least we know he is In a better place than us! We just have to take our place inline until HE calls us home. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers, especially at this difficult time. HE is the. ONLY one we truly can lean on and get the support we need. God. Bless. You All. Helen and Sonny.
