    God Bless you and your family Kurt as you celebrate your Mom and the wonderful memories you have of her. What a joy to know she is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that He is holding her in His tender arms. While you are sad to see her leave this earth, know that you will see her again one day in Heaven. May God surround you and your family during this difficult time and know she is now at peace and her pain is gone.

    I am so sorry to hear of your wife’s passing. My heart goes out to you and your family.

    Though I only met your sweet momma once, I can tell how dearly she was loved by so many. A sudden loss like this is devastating beyond words. I ache for your pain. I am so sorry for the heartache of your earthly loss. What a blessing to have the Hope of heaven and the promise of Jesus words that He will come again for His own. You and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers through this most heart wrenching time. “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 If there is anything we can do, please let us know.
    love you, Rebecca Krebs
