I am saddened to learn of the loss of your dear Charles. My heartfelt condolences. The loss of a loved one can be very painful, no matter how many their years. May your pleasant memories of Charles' life, and the wonderful Bible promise of the resurrection, sooth your broken hearts. ( John 5:28-29, Psalms 37:9-11,29, Psalms 83:18 ) God always keeps His promises. ( Titus 1:2 )
