We were not able to attend the memorial for Glenn. In the days ahead, may our God of comfort, Jesus, hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember his life legacy. The lyrics of this song of our risen Lord have helped us through the different seasons of life and we thoughtfully share: 'Be not afraid, I go before you always. Come, follow Me, and I will give you rest'.

Dear family. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible books of Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29. Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, pain, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you a measure of relief during this difficult time.
