To the Sweeney family and friends: My deepest sympathies on your loss. Soon our loving heavenly Father will eliminate death forever and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again. (Isaiah 25:8) What a comforting thought. You may be bale to see Richard in the future and enjoy his company once again. May that sure promise and your cherished memories of him give a measure of comfort at this time. Your family is in our thoughts!
