To the King family, my sincere condolences for your loss. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our Heavenly Father return your dear one to you. Our Creator sent Jesus to provide "comfort to the broken hearted" and "all who mourn." (Isa. 61, 1-2) (Luke 4:17-21) May these promises from our Heavenly Father give you comfort and hope for the future. Deepest Sympathy.
