A word of comfort from the scriptures. God promises that there will be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous Acts 24:15 and at Psalm 37:29 "The righteous will possess the earth and they will reside forever upon it." Revelation 21:3-4 "GOD...will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." It is my hope that the scriptures and your fond memories will help you through this time of sorrow.

Smith Family,
Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers in the loss of your Father. We all have fond memories of my Grandparents neighbors "Sam & Dorothy". May you find comfort in your memories and may God carry you through your time of grief.

Heartfelt sympathy to all of cousin Sam's family. I have fond memories of our time working together at Burlington Industries in Dublin. I am related on Sam's Grandmother Kirtner's side of the family and would love to hear from some of Sam's family via email or phone 276-236-3091. Not long ago I saw Sam at the company dinner that we still have monthly. Sam will be greatly missed.
