Dear Parents, I express my grief to you and your family. I'm sure that words cannot express the pain that the both of you are now suffering. May God be with your family and comfort you at this time. (John 5:28) Please know that I will keep you in my prayers.

Randy, Betty & Jessica, (We are John Smith's parents) We are so sorry for your loss, our hearts break along with yours. John has had a few really good friends over the years & Zach was one of them. They had a lot in common. When John would come home we knew we'd get to catch up with him - we always enjoyed his company. Our prayers of comfort & peace will continue for your family.
