Our deepest sympathies to you Jeri and family. We are so sorry that we will not be able attend the service for Uncle Larry. We wish we could be there in person to share in the hugs and tears and share in the memories of Uncle Larry. Our deepest sympathies to you all, but we do not sorrow with out hope. We will truly miss him here with us but we know God's promises are true. John 20:31 promises.......
"But these have been written so you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name."
Just knowing that by faith alone in Christ alone we can rest in the promise of eternal life gives us peace and hope even in the midst of the sadness and pain of losing someone we all loved. Jeri, you and Larry have always shown us girls and family such love and kindness. We pray that we can all trust God's promises for comfort. "The Lord's lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22,23. We love you. Our prayers are with you.
Love, Terri, Bob, Morgan, and Jack
