  1. To: The Sheppard-Ewing Family.
    I am sorry for your lost. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. Jesus said: At John 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him (her) on the last day.
    May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahead.
