    My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Mayers. I'm sure he was loved by many! I hope you find comfort in our Heavenly Fathers promise for the future found in Isaiah 25:8. There he promises to "swallow up death forever" and to "wipe away the tears from ALL faces." Yes, soon God will eliminate death forever and restore humans to a beautiful paradise earth, where we can all live forever! (Psalms 37:29) I hope these wonderful thoughts can bring you comfort during this difficult time.

    1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. 7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 8 Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

    Psalm 46:1-10

    RIP my friend.

    My father, Gary Rice, Sr., worked at Holsum in Oak Lawn as a supervisor & salesman for 29 years - retiring in 1993 before passing away in January 1994.  Rest peacefully, Mr. Mayers.
