I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth! I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.

I am so sad to hear of Uncle Robert's passing. I still remember the whole family gathering at Mom-mom & Poppop's house on Christmas Eve and how the sounds of laughter & stories between Uncle Robert and my Dad could be heard through the house. He will be missed. Love, Dana (Rossell) & Scott Davis
