This is to Oliver and family.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I've known your family since the 60's and have always thought highly of you all. You are in my prayers. Praying that God will give you strength, comfort and hold you close during this time and into the future.
Ephesians 3:20

Hi, there. I'm not a friend of the family, nor did I personally know Donnie. I just wanted to say I'm so very sorry for your loss. I can't say I know what you're going through, or I understand because I personally haven't been through this yet. I do hope to offer some comfort , from the Bible at Revelation 21:3&4, where there's the promise of there being no more death, tears, or pain. This seems almost impossible to imagine but God, only says things he intends to do. I know this doesn't take away the pain now, but I hope this will bring you some comfort and hope for the future.
