I would like to send my condolences to the Krasgrow Family upon reading about your recent loss! I hope that this message of comfort and hope helps your family take refuge in prayer at Psalms 57: 1, and know that your loved one is alive in gods memory. At Luke 20:37,38 may the God of comfort, comfort you at this time. God has made the loving provision for a resurrection, so that you can see, Mr. Krasgrow again and such hope Jesus told us about is found at John 5:28-29. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss!
Jerry and family, I am deeply saddened on the loss of George and know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May he rest in heavenly peace and God bless you all.
