    Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

    I am so very sorry. I knew him when I was a teenager. Something made me think about him last night. I looked him up this morning and found this obituary. It has been over forty years since I last saw him. My condolences to the family.
