I’m sorry for your loss: hold close the hope of the promise at 2 Peter 3:13 “But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.” (Acts 24:15; John 11:25) The Hearer of prayer and the God of all comfort is close

Tabathia, Tiffany and Kim, your dad and husband was a very kind man. I only spoke with him on a few occasions but it was evident he had a huge heart. You could tell he loved his family and was very kind in regards to my mother. May God give you peace and comfort during this time. You know he’s with Jesus.
