Dearest Kellie and family, while I did not know your dad personally, you had spoken of him. My heart goes out to you and yours. You are loved.

May the family be comforted with the sure hope of the resurrection. What a delightful person Bill is. He will be thrilled to take his next breath in paradise. When Jesus calls, Bill will answer.Job 14:14 Jesus said that Lazarus was “asleep” because he was going to wake him after being in the grave for 4 days. John 5:28,29 tells us not to be amazed when they are resurrected, but you know we will be overwhelmed. This is the hard part being patient. We stay built up spiritually by being comforted with reassuring scriptures. “Enjoy Life Forever” Warm Christian Love, Sandy Wirfs
