Strausser family I am sorry to just hear of Ricky passing. Please accept my condolences. Psalms 36:9 says that with God is the source of life. Please take comfort in knowing that although Ricky is no longer alive the very one who cares the most of him has the ability to bring him back to life.

My condolences to the lost of your love one. Death is something that was not meant for humankind, because God, he created humans with a yearning to live forever (Ecclesiastes 3:11). However our loving God gives us a wonderful hope that 'death will be brought to nothing' and that we will see our love ones again (1 Corinthians 15:26; Mark 5:39-42).
