My condolences to Susan and James for the loss of your dad. Thank you Susan for bringing him to Arizona and allowing me to finally meet him–the only one of the many many cousins I hadn’t met. How nice for him to be with us and how blessed he is with two children who must have made him so proud! And who took good care of him. Rest In Peace forever in the presence of God, Doug.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your loved one. It is comforting to know that he is alive in God’s memory, God will never lose sight of him. (Luke 20:38)
It is also comforting to know of a time when God promises to end death forever. (Rev. 21:4)
At that time all the ones alive in God’s memory will be brought back to life. (John 5:28)
