Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. No doubt this is a very difficult time for you.. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy that God’s kingdom will eliminate. Notice the wonderful promise for the future at 1 Cor.15:26 “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” God will remove death permanently.

Leo, Sorry to hear about your Dad but he will now be together with your Mom and brother. Hope you and your family are doing well! We lived next door to you on Duncan so long ago. I didn’t know your Mom passed away in 2005. She was a lovely lady.
