“I'm so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the scriptures found at revelations 21:3, 4 where it brings out that soon death, mourning, and outcry will be no more. I know living in a time like today we all are looking forward to a time where we won't have to say goodbye to someone in death.”
“Grandpa Reinbold was a very funny man. I was lucky to have been able to meet him and spend time at his lake property as a friend of his granddaughter Michelle. He had a nice smile and a laugh to share with you each time he saw you. He will certainly be missed by many. Love and prayers go out to the family. ”
