     Karen I will miss our brief knitting friendship, always greeting me with those  warm smiling eyes.  I appreciate and feel privileged that you allowed me to assist you with your ancestry search re:  your father.  Maybe he greeted you on his motorcycle to take a ride into the sunset.  Love you

    Sincere condolences to the family and friends for your loss. What has helped me to deal with losing those close to me is what God has promised for the future. Revelation 21:4 says God will SOON eliminate death and suffering. Also He has promised  to resurrect ALL who have died! (John 5:28,29)  These are not mere words, but promises from Our Heavenly Father. They are sure to come true. I hope these thoughts can bring you some comfort during this extremely difficult time.
