Jeremy and Family,
We hope and pray that God comforts and blesses you and your family as you make your way through this time of sorrow. "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light."
