"While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you." May family and friends find comfort from "The peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts." Philippians 4;6,7. My sympathy to the family.
