To family and friends of Kirkland. My deepest sympathy to you for the loss of your love one. The death of a love one brings tears and sorrow. It is comforting to know that the Bible at John 5:28,29 promise that our loved ones who have died can live again by means of the resurrection. Kirkland will be missed. dearly

Please accept my sympathy for your loss.  A word of comfort in your time of sorrow is God will swallow up death forever and will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. Isaiah 14:8,9  May the peace which comes from the memories shared with Kirkland, comfort you now and in the days ahead.
