  1. We would like to offer the family our heartfelt condolences.
    In just a little while all of the pain and sorrow that we feel
    from the death of our love one’s will cease and be replaced with joy ,
    because the former things have passed away.

  2. Sister Susan Mary Rathbun, OSU :

    Zita, you are in our prayers for comfort at this time of the death of Charles!

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death…and it is not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious one. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again!
