I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family of Fred Kappel Sr over the loss of your dear loved one. During this most difficult time, may you find comfort and peace in the words of our loving Heavenly Father at Isaiah 25:8. He promises to "swallow up death forever, and ... will wipe away the tears from all faces." God is "close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18)
