May the ìGod of all comfortî provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3:-7) The Bible shares a wonderful resurrection hope for future. I pray that you find comfort in the wonderful promises of John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15.

Susan,

I am sorry to hear about your father. I enjoyed working with him during his time at Eaton. I thought highly of him and can still see the sparkle in his eyes when he spoke of you. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.
