Although we dont know you personally, please accept our deepest sympathy for your recent loss of Paul.  You may feel like the Psalmist at Psalms 119:28--"I weep with grief.  My heart is heavy with sorrow.  Encourage and cheer me with your words."  I Corinthians 15:26 says death is our enemy, and it truly is.  But Revelation 21:3,4 says there will be an end to death.  May you be comforted by these words of Jesus  Prayerfully yours, John and Elaine

Dear Nadine and Jerry we are so sorry for your loss. May God be with you in this time of need.Loosing a family member as a father and also an uncle is hard ,Val and I would like too wish you and your family our condolence on this sad day Your canadien friends Val & Monique Levesque
