Staten family–was in a total state of shock when I read about Keith–please know that all of you are in my prayers–we all know he has gone to a much better place and that he is with his Father and dad–know you have been blessed to have Keith in your lives

I am sadden to hear of the loss of Keith. Losing anyone we love is difficult. But we know that our loss is only temporary.
Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” – John 11:25
The Bible teaches that the dead will live again.
Jesus Christ himself said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” – John 5:28, 29
May you keep these thoughts and promises close to your heart.
Your friend,
Chris Wahl
