    Lyn & Ray,
    So sorry to hear of Tracy’s passing. Please know that you are in our prayers and that we will continue to lift you up, daily. I remember Tracy walking the aisle at Bethlehem, and giving his heart to Jesus. I claim the promises of our savior that He would never leave us, or forsake us. Those that we love are never really lost to us… We feel then in so many special ways… In the friends that they treasured, in the dreams that they left behind, and the memories… Those precious memories that will never be lost. May Good bless you and your family!
    Glen & Annette Brock

    Dear Lyn and family… I am so very sorry to learn of your loss of Tracy.

    Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

    Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John
