    I am very sorry for the loss of Roy. The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things families ever have to deal with. I have personally found comfort from the scripture found at Acts 24:15 “there is going to be a resurrection.” In line with that thought is Revelation 21:4 “death will be no more.” As we look forward to that wonderful time when we can be reunited with our loved ones again, I pray you find comfort from these reassuring promises.
