To the family. I am deeply saddened by the grief that you are feeling.
Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue to look to him when ” He will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, pain, and crying will be no more. – Revelation 21:3, 4
He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.

I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Lavada. I knew her as a child and only as an adult through her friend Rosemary Frasnelli. We spoke of Lavada and Larry and the good people of Benwood. I offer my sympathy and prayers to Larry and all the family.
