Bobby and Carol Brown

Dear Pete, Audra, Elizabeth and Boccardi Family

Please accept our most sincere sympathy in the loss of your Dad. We are thinking of you at this most difficult time.

Caring Neighbor

I wanted to express my deepest sympathy and concern for all affected by this loss and also share with you the wonderful hope for our dead loved ones. As you grieve Francis' death, please think of the hope in question, which comes from our Creator, Jehovah God (Psalms 36:9). By means of the Bible, He allows us to understand how He'll eliminate death for good one day and bring the dead back to life. Reading Scriptures like (Isaiah 25: 8), (John 5: 28), (1 Corinthians 15:26), (Revelation 21:3,4) will comfort you and give you inner peace. God's promises are certain because He cannot lie. (Titus 1:2) Moreover Jesus, who also promises to bring the dead back to life, showed he's able to do it when he resurrected Lazarus a several others when he was on earth (John 11 verses 11-14, 39, 43, and 44). So as you await Francis' resurrection, please gain accurate knowledge from the Bible. Because in John 5 verse 39, Jesus explains that such knowledge is vital in order to have endless life one day here on earth, which will become a paradise where you can be reunited with your dear Francis again. (Ps: 37: 29).

Bob and Marcella Scoville

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
