    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. This is one of the most difficult things we must face in this life. The Bible assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken in heart. He also promises that we will be able to see our loved ones again. Jesus own words found at John 5:28,29 tells us that. What a wonderful hope!

    I live in California now, so did not know of your dad’s passing until my nephew in Council Bluffs emailed me the notice. I am so sorry to hear of this and send you my prayers. Charleen and Earl and Bud and I had so many, many good times when all of you kids were young. Earl was a kind and good man, and he will be missed by many. Sincerely, Charlene
