  1. We are heartbroken for our co-worker Jennifer & her family on the loss of her grandfather of whom we have heard about often. We will truly miss the stories of; the Freeway Café; the many goings'on at the house; the cats; and the mishaps galore. We adore your anecdotes as well as the love and humor you have shared with us about this great man that you all love so much. It's a privilege to have you as our co-worker and friend and we share with you in this deep loss of a man so admired. Marianna, Shelia and Jessica

    I'm sorry for the lost of your family member .To give comfort I would like to share you a message from the Bible. We all want to live and enjoy life to the full with the ones who we love. And it's natural that we do, but I would like to give a scripture and that's at John 5:28, 29 that states That Jesus will resurrect the ones who are sleeping in death, and just like God's original promise that we as humans will live on a paradise earth with everlasting life (John 17:3) and (Psalm 37:29).I hope this will comfort you and your family and that you can always rely on the Bible for comfort and guidance.
