  2. To The Garnes Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and wish to extend my condolences to the family. Death is our enemy and was never a part of God’s original plan for us. He has promised in Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4, to eliminate death along with sickness and pain forever. May you find a measure of comfort in Jesus’ words about the resurrection in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29. Prayers and thoughts are with everyone during this difficult time.
