Death is so unfair. The scriptures tell us that death is the “last enemy” to be brought to nothing at 1 Cor 15:26. In the meantime, may your family find comfort in God’s word at Rev 21:4 which says: “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.”

Dear Mark, Chris & family:
We were very saddened to learn the news. Reading about Richard’s years of service at Hurley says so much of who he was,... in addition to his dedication and integrity. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
