    houston TXWith Heartfelt sympathy to the Jorgenson Family,
    May you find comfort in the word of God and in the knowledge that others sympathize with you in your loss. Since this may be one of the hardest things we will ever have to cope with, the bible offers hope. Pointing to a glorious time, Isaiah 25:6 says, “God will actually swallow up death forever and Jehovah God will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” Please read John 5:28,29. It has bought comfort to many bereaved persons and myself. I pray it does the same for you.

    I was saddened to hear of Karen’s passing. I remember playing with Sheri, Lori, and Gary, and Doug & Ginny’s kids, when we were wee children. Karen was always so nice and I know how much you will all miss her.
    I hope you find comfort in warm and fun memories of many happy years.
