My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Leona. May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

My condolences to the family of Leon Darrell. The death of a love one is one of the most devastating experiences to face in life. It is a real struggle to cope with. You are not alone in your grief. The greatest comfort comes from the bible. There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Earthly Resurrection. Acts 24:15
