I am so sorry for your loss. After 58 years of marriage, I know you will be lonely, Barbara. The house will never seem the same. You are all in my prayers. Thank you so much for remembering Dare to Care as the recipient of donations.

I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear Wayne. I hope that you will find comfort in the words of Jesus at John 5:28,29 where he promised that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect back to life those in the grave. And they will be brought back to a beautiful paradise earth with no more sickness. (Psalm 37:11,29) (Isaiah 33:24) Until then, it is just like your dear Wayne is sleeping. (John 11:11-13) May your family draw strength from Jehovah, the God of all Comfort.
