    One of the most difficult person to lose is a precious, dearly loved Husband and Father. The void can never be filled but good memories last forever. There are no words that can unbreak your heart at this time. Remembering the good times will help heal the void you now feel. The scriptures give solace saying, “He is healing the brokenhearted ones”. (Psalms 147: 3) And “…all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out …to a resurrection of life.” (John 5:28, 29) So we look forward to seeing our dearly loved ones again in paradise. May the comfort from the scriptures bring the family hope and peace. May the love of family and friends expressed through their support and prayers, help you heal your hearts in the weeks and months to come.
