I’m so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s promise of a resurrection where we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away and will never be separated by death again - John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3,4

We all feel a big void with Herschel gone. Finding comfort in knowing he is with the Lord and without pain. It was a difficult journey and he was a strong trooper. He had faith and kept positive. This year with him has brought the family closer. I will always be thankful for all that he shared of himself with me and my family. He had a generous heart. Praying that time will heal our brokenness.
