Dear Gipe family,
Our deepest condolences as you are grappling with your loss. Please know that we earnestly think and pray for those whom have lost loved ones. This loss is not natural, nor is it part of God's original purpose. Rose is now in the safest possible place and waits to say the words at 1 Corinthians 15:55 "Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?" Trust that your pain is not overlooked and that we all look forward to a time when death will be no more. (Revelation 21:4) The scriptures have been provided to give comfort and show us what Gods loving plan is for those who enter rest. Take peace. For comfort from the Bible, please visit
