May your memories give you strength
To: The Pennington Family. I am sorry for your lost. There is hope for him.Job 14:7 For there exist hope for even a tree.If it gets cut down, it will even sprout again, And its own twig will not cease to be.This Scripture shows that our God has set a provision for even a tree,if it gets cut down its twig will sprout and not cease to be.There is a provision for our love one who have fell asleep in death,they will live again,
May the peace and love of God be with each of you and give you strength during your time of grief. Cherish the great memories you shared during your life with him.
