    To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. During this sad time, please know that our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in times of grief, and he promises to end the pain of death by means of his kingdom (Psalm 34:18, Daniel 2:44, and Revelation 21:3,4). In the days to come, may these verses provide encouragement for your family. Take care.

    To Nellow's Dear Family O death! why do you touch the tree beneath whose spreading branches weariness have rest? Why do you snatch away the excellent of the earth, in whom is all our delight? If you must use your axe, use it upon the trees which yield no fruit; you might be thanked then. But why will you fell the goodly cedars of Lebanon? O stay your axe, and spare the righteous. But no, it must not be; death strikes the best of our friends; the most generous, the most prayerful, the most holy, the most devoted must die. And why? It is through Jesus’ prevailing prayer—“Father, I will that they also, whom you hast given me, be with me where I am.” It is that which bears them on eagle’s wings to heaven. Every time a believer mounts from this earth to paradise, it is an answer to Christ’s prayer. A good old divine remarks, “Many times Jesus and his people pull against one another in prayer. You bend your knee in prayer and say ‘Father, I will that your saints be with me where I am’; Christ says, ‘Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am.’ ” Thus the disciple is at cross-purposes with his Lord. The soul cannot be in both places: the beloved one cannot be with Christ and with you too. Now, which pleader shall win the day? If you had your choice; if the King should step from his throne, and say, “Here are two supplicants praying in opposition to one another, which shall be answered?” Oh! I am sure, though it were agony, you would start from your feet, and say, “Jesus, not my will, but yours be done.” You would give up your prayer for your loved one’s life, if you could realize the thoughts that Christ is praying in the opposite direction—“Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am.” Lord, you shall have them. By faith we let them go. May this help you and you family during this very difficult time for you know he is with you as you endure this terrible loss.

    The many tmes we spent at your home as we traveled to visit. We appreciated the great hospitality and learning about hunting shows and various wildlife. You had a great way showing us we "were okay". You have been apart of our family for as long as I can remember. Your presence will truly be missed. We will keep your name alive in our conversations.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. God(Psalm 83:18) promises to bring mans enemy death to nothing, 1 Corinthians 15:26 bc he takes no pleasure in it, Ezekiel 18:32. May He continue to comfort and strengthen you, Psalm 29:11; Titus 1:2
