    Dear Peeks Family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the recent loss of your dear loved one. May the God of Comfort be with you during this time of sorrow. May you find hope in these words, ” And he 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.” (Revelation 21:4) While we wait on this wonderful promise to be fulfilled, may all of your precious memories help sustain you during the weeks to come. Warm Christian Love.
