In the difficult days to come may the many wonderful memories of the Generals life give you comfort. Something we have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28 “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out “. May God Jehovah comfort you during this difficult time.
