    Sending my sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved Craig. Losing someone so young is so heartbreaking, and I want to share a comforting scripture with you. It is found at Isaiah 41:10, 13 where verse 10 says, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.” Verse 13 continues saying, “For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, The One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you.’” Hopefully these beautiful scriptures bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.


    Gary and Family, very sorry to hear of this loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!
