Dear Doug and Family — I know the heaviness that burdens your hearts at this very moment. The blessing of a full and vibrant life is of little consolation when the life of a loved one comes to an end. I pray you will find peace and comfort in the arms of our Lord and that you will lean on Him during your time of sorrow and grief.
