My family and I would like to offer our deepest sympathies to you and your family. We are so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. Turn to the Holy Scriptures for guidance and to help soothe your heart. Psalms 34:18 assures us that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

Lori, Wayne, Ashley, Nick, Caleb and other family members. We are in shock and disbelief over JR's passing. We hope that you will find peace in the comforting arms of God. Please let us know if you need anything or just need to talk. God of hope, we come to you in shock and grief and confusion of heart. Help us to find peace in the knowledge of your loving mercy to all your children, and give us light to guide us out of our darkness into the assurance of your love,in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
