Dear Pflueger Family:

While reading the online obituary, I observed the death of your loved one.
Death is an enemy to mankind and who can understand it? It can and dose have a devastating effect on you an your family as well.

Can you imagine reading a newspaper with the headline: "When Death is Swallowed Up Forever......" What a wonderful time that will be. Revelation 21:4 offers this hope, it states: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." What a comforting hope?

If you would be interested in learning even more, I can send you a little tract that is entitle "What Hope for Dead Loved Ones"? If you have any Questions please feel free to contact me at this e-mail address here (b.molina56@yahoo.com).

I offer my sincere condolences, may the God of peace be with you and your family.

Sincerely Yours,
Brandy Molina

Dear Carmen & Kathy,

I wanted to let you know how sorry I was to hear about Gene. John & I lived down the road from you, and I worked with you at Utrad. My best memory of Gene was when he & Kathy forged their way to our house a couple of days after the blizzard of '78 to bring milk & bread. What a wonderful thing to do. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care.

Carolyn Morris
