  5. I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.
    When we are grieving the loss of a loved one, we can find comfort from the scriptures. I found a couple scriptures at
    Psalm 55:22 promises that God will sustain us if we just throw our burdens on him. So we need to remember to pray.
    I look forward to seeing Doug in the resurrection when he will again be enjoying friends/family. (John 5:28,29).
    I hope these scriptures bring you as much comfort as they bring me.

  6. May the Lord be with at this time
