To the Bosley Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. May the words of Jesus found at John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 be a source of comfort to you. Welcoming back our love ones will be a wonderful time. It was never God’s intent for man to die. He plans to eliminate death very soon. Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. And we can enjoy living on a paradise earth forever with our families. Psalm 37 verse 29. I hope these scriptures bring you encouragement and comfort.

Mary Ellen, I am really shocked to read of Jim’s passing. Jim was a very good friend to Bill and I. There aren’t enough words to really express my grief and it would have been Bill’s also. Jim was not only a good friend, but a great classmate! Fondly, Esther
