So sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time. I hope that you can find some peace and comfort from the scripture found at Acts 24:15,where it shows us that soon we will be reunited with our loved ones again. May this be of some encouragement to you as you face this hardship.

Dear Jean, I only just now learned of Genes Home going and it took me completely by surprise. We both thought so much of Gene and we're so sad to hear this! You and your family will be much in our prayers in the coming days. Much love to you as Always.
