Dear Mrs. Elder, I remember with such fondness the loving embrace that encircled "young" Paul by not only you and your husband, but the community as a whole. I am sorry for the loss to the whole of Grafton who knew him well, and most especially the heart of yours which I pray will find peace in the knowledge that he is back with both his heavenly and earthly Fathers and brother. May God Bless you in your hour of grief, and may your days be filled with love and strength.

Dear Elder Family,
I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. I hope the Bible’s promise at John 5:28,29 which says “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth” brings your family comfort and hope. Can we really believe what the Bible says? Yes!! God is the “source of life” (Ps 36:9) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. May you reflect on this wonderful promise from God as you deal with the loss of your loved one.
