My heartfelt condolences go out to all the family. May the love of those around you help you in the coming days. I can't imagine the sadness the family is feeling to lose Roy. Such a loss. The right words are hard to find at a time like this. I have found that it helps to turn my attention to God and his Word for support. The scripture offers us comfort from our heavenly father. (Isaiah 25: 8, Isaiah 33: 24, Revelations 21: 3, 4, Job 14: 14, 15) Also, has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. I offer my sincere condolences to the family. Myran Julie Jarmon, Midland City, Ala
