Donnie & Joy, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. After Ron's departure, I stopped saying, "Sorry for your loss." As Christians, our loved ones are not "lost;" we know right where they are. On TV last night, I heard someone say, "It is appropriate to say, 'Sorry for your loss' because it is with great anticipation that "we will see our loved one again." Previously, I felt sad when someone said, "loss," but now I can say that again with great joy because we WILL see our loved ones again. May God wrap His loving arms around each member of your precious family and give the peace and comfort that only He can truly give. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know. You will be in our prayers.
Love & prayers,
