    My family and I want to offer our deepest sympathy on reading of the sad passing of George. May the warmth of family and friends and your loving memories over the years give you strength during the times ahead. It is truly comforting to know our Lord Jesus made a promise regarding our loved ones who have died. He promised a resurrection. A time when we will see them again. That guarantee is found at John 11:25. It is our hope these words will bring you comfort and hope.
    With prayers
    The Dawes family
