My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the love and memories shared together. It is my hope that you will also find comfort in God's heartwarming promise found in the Bible book of Acts 24:15, where we are assured that "there is going to be a resurrection." May this promise from God, who cannot lie (Titus 1:2), help you to endure the loss of your loved one, Doyle.
