I’d like to express my sympathies to the Smith family. When I lost a dear friend of mine a few years ago, what helped me was Revelation 21:4. Its says “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more”. I hope this comforts you as much as it did me.

Jackie Smith & Charles Miller and Family - Apr 30, 2011

Family, We are so sorry about Bob. He was a great brother-in-law, husband and family man. His drive for a good education and a life plan was an up most importance to him and Ann. Now he is with the Love of his life, his sole mate and friend and my sister. I love You all, Aunt Jackie
