Dearest Kris & Blair,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you on this day. Our language cannot articulate emotions the heart and soul feels when losing our parents — prayer is the only form we know as we send them up to God.
Know you are loved!

My condolences to you Brenda for the loss of your father.Pennie Kempter Busby
At times like this we all look for comfort and hope, and God’s Word the Holy Bible provides us with both. Note please the words of comfort spoken by our Lord Jesus to Martha, who just lost her brother, in John 11:23-25, “Your brother will rise, I am the resurrection and the life he that exercises faith in me even though he dies will come to life” Also note his promise in John 5:28,29, “Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…..to a resurrection of life.”
