    To The Family of Walter,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and would like to extend my condolences. Death was never a part of God’s original plan and he has promised to eliminate death forever. Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Soon, the words God’s son Jesus spoke regarding the resurrection at John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 will allow us the opportunity to welcome back our loved ones and to live forever on a paradise earth. Psalms 37 verse 29. I hope that these scriptures bring you comfort and hope for the future.

  3. Miss you Dad. I feel you around. Keep watching us all. Love you
