    I am really sorry for the loss of your family member dear to you. But it is heartwarming to learn that God feels for you and he longs for the time when he will bring back to life your loved ones sleeping in death  according to Job 14:14,15. Until that time,  may God of all comfort be able to comfort your entire family  during this difficult time.

    Bob and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have never had the opportunity to meet your dad, but I am sure he was a wonderful man or he could not have raised such a smart, kind and caring man as you. Just want you to know that you and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
