Nick, I heard about your mom's passing today when I went to Tri-County.  I was really shocked to hear that.  I have a couple of pictures of her when we went out after work.  If you give me a call I will be glad to give them to you. Your mom was a lot of fun to work with and we had some really good times there.  Please give me a call when you get a chance and when it's convenient for you. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Gardner Family,
I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed at John 5:28, 29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses, we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended--free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this hs comforted me greatly and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.
