Dear Doreen, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved husband. He was always so brave and never let the pain show. I loved being with both of you in Wyoming last year. I'm so glad we had that time together. May God bless you at this very sad time and may your memories of him help you deal with this tremendous loss.
Love your cousin, Anita

My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for the day when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).
