We are so sorry to have read of your loss. We’re sure Don will be deeply missed by family and friends. Losing a loved one is one of the most painful things in life. In the difficult days to come may the many wonderful memories of of Don give you comfort. Something we have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28 “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out “. May God Jehovah comfort you during this sad time in your life.
