    I am sending my condolences to the family. When someone we love dies its very painful. But the Bible talks about God doing away with pain at Rev 21:4. May the God of comfort provide solace to your family at this time.

    I would like to express condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. [Revelations 21:3-5] says in part that God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.

    Mr. Richard would always put a smile on my face when ever I saw him. He would always come in the office full of joy. I have good memories of our talks and especially one where he told me they where going to jump start his heart. Well Mr. Richard you've crossed the bar with a "NEW" heart. Ms. Minnie you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. I'll always be here whenever you need me. Ginger Flowers Down East Ins. Agent

    I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one is truly a heart breaker that can sometimes seem to last forever. Our Heavenly Father wants to give you comfort as you go through this very trying time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) I hope that you find some comfort from Jehovah God’s word the Bible.
