My condolences to the family. I know this is a sad time for the family and the almighty God knows it also. He assures us at John 5:28,29 that we have the opportunity to see our love ones again. I am so sorry for your loss.

My condolences to the Butts family. A prayer and a shoulder for each and everyone of you.  Too loose a Father, Brother, and Friend takes a lot out of everyone, but know with his memory lies a smile and peace.

May God Keep You all..

The death of a loved one is one of the most stressful things humans experiences. Martha and her sister Mary grieved deeply for their brother Lazarus when he died, even Jesus gave way to tears(John 11:35). Please read this account so that it can give you hope and the strength you need during this time of great sorrow(John 11:11-44). Jesus showed that death has no lasting hold on us and Jehovah God has promise us a wonderful future without death and tears(Revelation 21:3,4). Sorry for your loss.
