    I wanted to express my condolences with the family and friends of Allen Lane Bare. I know death of someone you love so dearly is a hard thing to go through. I’d like to share with you a scripture from the Bible might be of some comfort. Psalms 46:1 says “God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during distresses.” I hope this helps you as much as it has me, knowing that God is there for us when we are undergoing hardship.
