Mary Berg left a message on March 17, 2018:
To the family, my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the "Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort.”(2 Cor 1:3) One day soon, all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28, 29) May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
