  1. Brian and Family, we are sorry for the loss of your grandmother and you are in our thoughts during this difficult time. Chad and Denise Navarrete

  2. I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.
