The death of someone you love is one of life’s greatest tragedies but the God who comforts all who mourn help to sustain you during this most difficult time, as you await the fulfillment of Gods promise to be reunited with your loved one again (John 6:40)

My heartfelt sympathy to you and Shawn on the loss of my friend Jessie. Know that he is now resting in the arms of the Lord God. He will continue to look out for you and Shawn and you have many, many memories to keep in your heart and mind. I am always near for whatever you need. Keep strong and keep in prayer.
