I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family as you mourn the loss of your loved one. May this scripture provide you all comfort--Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal. Deacon Robert Ladd was a beautiful person and lived a life filled with love for his fellowman.  My sincere condolences to the family during the passing of your loved one.
