Brother Erik

Dear Sollenberger family,
We know that at this most difficult time, your hearts are heavy and life is difficult. Please know that we feel your pain and frequently pray for those who loved ones have entered rest. "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Please cherish the good memories you have, take solace in knowing Doris is in the safest place, and is in the best possible care. The scriptures have been provided to give us comfort and He's lovingly given us His plan for those whom we've lost. For comfort from the Bible, please visit
