So sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family. I didn’t know Oakland, but I have known Raymond and Marsha for many, many years. Hold to Jesus just as tightly during this time as you’re wanting Jesus to hold Oakland. Love in Christ

So sorry for the loss of Oakland, He's surely in the arms of Jesus waiting on you all to soon come to be with them. From our own experience we know that our faith in a living God is all that can get us through times like these. Our prayers are going up for you all. May HIS GRACE fill the vacancy and the hole in your heart.
