My deepest condolences to the family at this difficult time. I hope the words at Rev 21:4 bring you comfort. It tells of a time soon when there will be no more sickness, pain or death.

Im sorry to hear of your loss. At a time like this, prayer along with thoughts from the scriptures can provide a measure of comfort. For example at Revelation 21:3,4 we find the thought that one day soon, God will wipe all tears including those caused by sickness and death. Futher John 5:28,29 gives us the hope of the resurrection in which we will welcome our loved ones back. I hope that these few thoughts provided a small measure of comfort.

Cookie, we are so sorry for the loss of Mickey. He was a great friend
and classmate. We really enjoyed being with both of you at class
reunions. You and your family will be in our prayers. We would have
been at the service but we still have ice and snow on the ground and are
expecting more Tuesday!

To the Boswell Family,
So sorry to hear of Mr. Mickey's passing. I have such great memories of Glenda and me sitting around the kitchen table with him and solving the world's problems. He was such a great man. I know you will miss him.
