Please do accept my sincere condolences for the lost of your love one. I too am a fellow veteran who served in the Navy and know the sacrifices he made for his country. Death is definitely our enemy. The Bible promises that one day death will be no more, and this last enemy known as death will be brought to nothing. Rev: 21:3-5. and 1 Corinthians 15:26 please do read these Scriptures in your own Bible. May the God of all Comfort and Peace be with you.

Brown's Bridge Road in the late 1960s. Candito, Denning and Anderson children growing up together. It was a wonderful time full of great memories. So sorry for your loss.
