May the true God watch over your family during this most difficult time. Losing a loved one in death is a hard burden to bear. May you find comfort from the Bible's promise of a resurrection for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. -John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15

Words cannot express the sadness that my heart carries. May God bless and keep the family in this time of grieving. As Bishop Robinson (my cousin) would always say. "I Love You and There's Nothing You Can Do About It".
