    We are here for you Sharde when ever. You know how to get ahold of us. Promised you Dad and Uncle we would always be there for you <3

  2. Dear Cowan family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of William. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

Leave Your Condolence
