Dear Sue and John,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Christmas time is suppose to be a wonderful time to spend with family and friends and when one is lost close to the holidays it seems to make the void that much larger.
You are both in my thoughts and prayers. May Rick rest in peace.
So sorry to hear of your BIL passing, a sad thing anytime but even more so at this holiday season. I am glad it was peaceful and without pain, we could all wish to pass that way. My prayers are with you John and Sue.
I am sorry to hear this but he is in a much better place. I am sending my condolences to John and the family. My prayers are with you in your loss. May God wrap you in His loving arms and give you strength.
Susie and John, It is always a crush when someone we love passes on, but from experience I can say that it was not bad for me and I felt no pain or awareness. It was harder for the people observing rather than experiencing. I pray that your B/BIL's passing was as easy as that. Easier than that even. God bless you both with the knowledge of your Father's love. He will bring you all together one day in the future. I pray that broken hearts are soon mended and life continues on even stronger for everyone.
Rest in Peace, Rick. May you have many loving days of laughter and joy meeting all who are there to greet you!
