Right now words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, but I look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of seeing God restore the lives of those who have died. “There is going to be a resurrection.” (Acts 24:15) I am so sorry for your loss, may you find comfort from the sure hope found in the scriptures. (Revelation 21:4)

Our deepest condolences to John's sons and family, John will be greatly missed. He wasn't just a Neighbor he was family and treated us like family. Now he lays to rest in God's hands with his beloved wife in heaven that he spoke so often about, which we also had the pleasure knowing and spending time with.
With deepest sympathies;
Joshua, Cherie, Serah, Angel, Gene , Steven, Keith and Tanya Ouellette
