  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I can only imagine how hard this is for you. We were never created to simply live then die. That wasn’t Jehovah’s purpose for us ( genesis 1:27,27) our loving creator is hurting just the same right now over this horrific loss and already has plans to swallow up death forever ( Isaiah 25: 8) please allow this hope through Gods word to help you cope during your time of need

    So sorry for your loss. I lived on the same street as children, we worked together and he was one of my brother’s best friends. I met up with him a little while back in Okotoks, he was surprised that I remembered him. My deepest condolences to you all at this time.
