  1. I am sorry to read of your loss. Death is such an enemy for us now but the Bible promises that it will not always be this way. There is a better hope for the future! And that is on this earth, not just in heaven. Note Rev 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Have you thought about what that means and where it will be the case?

    In the meantime, the Bible also provides comfort for us now for it says: ‘”To Jehovah the Sovereign Lord belong the ways out of death.” Psalms 68:20

  2. Bruce and I go back to Thatcher. I remember his generosity by letting me play with the best train set in town. We were fellow Boy Scouts, MYF guys, and YMCA softball championship teammates. We will miss his annual Christmas letter. Our sympathies.
    Ike and Joy Ikelman.
