  • Hi Doug and Dan,
    Sorry to learn of your loss. William Penn once wrote; “They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle…This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal.” I find that my faith along with thoughts such as this provide some level of comfort and peace when people we love move on to the next world.
    Blessing to you and your family,
    Randy Pickell
