We're so sorry to hear about your loss. At Ecclesiastes 9:11,12 , it states,"I have seen something further under the sun,...because time and unexpected events overtake them all. For man does not know his time....when it suddenly overtakes them." At John 11:25, Jesus said ..."I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." May these scriptures give you hope and comfort as they did our family. May God be your strength in the days to come. JR

The death of a loved one is hard to bare. Please take comfort in knowing that your Heavenly Father understands your pain, as he too has experienced the death of his son, Jesus Christ. We can see at Isaiah 25:8 that death is going to be done away with forever. We can also look to the promise at Acts 17:31 which promises that there is going to be a resurrection of our dear loved ones we have lost in death. I do do hope you find comfort in in this,

Joelene, Madison, and Kyle, May you always remember that your Dad was a very happy kind person, whose love of life was only dwarfed by his love for all of you. Chris rest in Paradise and watch over your loved ones during these hardest of times.

When I meet you for the first time it was in Philly. Actually one year to this day. That's when you kidnapped me and brought me to Pittston. Where I disappeared from for almost 30 years. It only took the whole ride back to find out we are family. Lol... My last words to you that day was Thank You. The second time we meet was just a few days ago. Playing horseshoes, when you gave me my only loss and you took my money. My last words to you that day was, Prick. I'm so glad we got to meet. I'm not ending this with my last word the both times we meet. Thanks Prick! Lol... so you will always be in my heart. You are an awesome person and I will never forget you...
