    To the family of Doris Riggs, I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Doris a long time ago. She will now be with her mom and dad in a place that knows no pain or grief. Rest in peace Doris.

    I am truly sorry for your loss. During such difficult times I find comfort in the scriptures. Isaiah 25:8 tells us that God will swallow up death forever. Can you imagine a time when no one will die? What about our loved ones that have already been lost? John 5:28, 29 says "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." God promises us that he will resurrect those who have been a victim of death. I hope that this future promise brings you so comfort and again I am truly sorry for your loss.
