    Torbett Family, So very sorry to hear of the recent loss of your loved one. May the God of Comfort be with each of you during this difficult time. A loved one lost can grieve the heart, and make us yearn for tomorrow, when Jehovah will keep the promise he made of no pain, no death, no sorrow. I hope all the wonderful memories that were shared help sustain you in the days ahead. Warm Christian Love
