To the Johns' family I send my most heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your beloved Mr. Raymond. What a blessing to have experienced part of his life for so many years! Surely, his example will help you to reflect on how you spend each of your days. As a man of faith, prayer must have been comforting to him, and it can be for you as well during this tender time. May good memories ease the pain of his passing and may all of you have peace. -Philippians 4:6, 7
