  1. Deepest sympathies for your loss. May you find comfort in loving memories of laughter and times spent together, and may they bring you joy and warm your heart. Losing someone we love dearly can leave us feeling lost and heartbroken, but take comfort in God’s Word, drawing ever closer to Him in prayer and supplication. Psalm 34:18 says Jehovah is near to those broken at heart, and those crushed in spirit he saves. We also have the assurance that soon death will be no more (Revelation 21:3,4), and John 5:28,29 holds out the hope of the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. May this bring you some comfort at this time.

  2. Gary, you will be missed by many family members and good friends. May you rest in peace. Our deepest sympathy to Karla, your boys, Elvia and Mrs. Taylor.
