Dear family,

Praying for you all during this very difficult time. Your Gateway family is praying for you as well. I know the Lord’s grace will be sufficient and that His grace will lead us home to a great reunion on the other side.

In His Love,

We are so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of your dad and, as a child, probably spent more time in your home than my own. He always treated me like I was his own, and for that I will forever be thankful maybe minus a few swats for keeping him awake at night. He was so proud of his family and left behind a great legacy. Our prayers are with you all and we share in your loss. May God comfort you during the difficult days ahead. Love to you all!
