I'm so sorry for your loss. May you find a measure of comfort and peace in knowing that God promises to soon swallow up death forever and bring our loved ones back to life in the coming resurrection. (Isaiah 25:8; Acts 24:15) May the precious memories you have sustain you until you see Willard again. -
