Private Condolence

I’m so sorry for your loss. Richard will be missed. What has helped me in times like these is what Jesus said at John 11:25, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope this will comfort you as it has me. If you need anyone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me.
