    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during this time.

    The world is a much sadder place now that David is no longer in it. He was one of the nicest, most big-hearted people that we ever met. And he loved Jennifer and his children and his friends with all his heart. I just hope and pray that the memories of his love will provide some comfort to everyone who knew him and that his happy-go-lucky spirit will live on in all of us.
