Keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers during your time of sorrow. May your cherished memories bring you comfort.

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4:13–14 NASB95)
