Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

I spent a lot of time at the Glover house growing up. Mr. Glover always made me feel welcome with a kind word and friendly advice. Some of my fondest memories are when Mr. Glover would fall asleep while watching television and snore so loudly that he would wake himself up. He would look around to see what woke him, then right back to sleep. He will be missed, so sorry for your loss.
