Tom & Phyllis & family,
To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. Were ever more comforting words, ever written? I should say not. Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift that can fully remove the sting of death. God be with you all, as you mourn, rejoice, bid farewell, and prepare to be re-united some day.
