    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your loved one. May God almighty, father of tender mercies continue to comfort you all (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4). How so eagerly we all await the fulfillment of God's promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). It is also comforting to know about the resurrection hope for our dead loved ones. May these comforting thoughts strengthen you all. You can find more comforting thoughts at

    We purchased Carols residence in Blue Ridge Villas. We didn't know her well but I called her 2 weeks ago and invited her to come and visit and show her what all we had done inside her old home. She sounded excited about coming. When we moved in almost 2 years ago she didn't have time to have the carpets cleaned so she left a check for $100 in a card. That was so thoughtful. Thoughts and prayers for her family.
