I am sad to hear this about Uncle Jim. He is finally free of all pain and suffering. I keep Jim and Kate alive by telling stories to my daughter about all the things I did with them as a kid.

To the Sawyer family, I’m very sorry for your loss. No matter how much time passes we still feel the loss of our loved ones and view death as God does, an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) May you find comfort and hope in His promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that shows soon there will be no more death, sickness, or pain, and we can see our lost loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
