I would like to send my condolences to the family of Stephen J. Slaboda Jr. May you and your family find comfort and encouragement from what the Bible teaches. Jesus made a wonderful promise that "those in the memorial tombs will...come out." This promise is found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 verses 28, 29. Remember to pray for help to endure you loss. At First John chapter 5 verse 14 explains: "No matter what it is that we ask according to God's will, he hears us."

Marge and family, Carol, and Elaine,
I am very sorry for your loss. I was out of town and could not attend any of the scheduled services.
