On this long 4th of July weekend, we are very grateful for Paul's military service, having defended our freedoms that we enjoy today in our patriotic country. Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our God of comfort and peace hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember and celebrate his life legacy. We have found the words of our risen Lord in song to help 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'. May our Lord richly bless you all.

Dear Family of Paul,
I am very sorry for your loss, in times like this we can be grief stricken and can not find comfort but our creator can help us. At 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 states be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. He also promises to end all the suffering we see today. (Revelation 21:4) And he also promises that we will see our loved ones again at Acts 25:15 says And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. so we truly can look forward to that promise.
