My deepest sympathy to each of you. May the love and the memories that you shared be of comfort to you. Our heavenly Father promises that he will restore life to many who have fallen asleep in death. He assures us that the day is soon to come in which the tears of sorrow of death will be no more.
Helen & Family,
