    My heartfelt sympathy to your family for your loss. Such a loss can bring many tears and much pain, but God has promised to "wipe away the tears from all faces" when He eliminates sickness and death forever. May this promise bring you comfort and strengthen you during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8; 26:19; 33:24)

    My wife and I wish to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Thomas McCann on your loss.

    There are many people we meet in life some accomplish great things; but of all that can proudly be called a hero, there is none greater than the person who serves their country to protect our freedoms and our way of life.

    How fortunate for all of us that while we rest and sleep some brave service member risks it all so we can sleep in peace. – Unknown

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.
