I’m so sad to learn of the passing of Mr.Sellers. May the special moments and loving memories stay close in your hearts and may you be comforted by the promise of the resurrection by Christ Jesus.. (John 5:28,28). During that time we can look forward to a bright future because Revelation 21:4 says:”He will wipe out every tear from their eyes. And death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away.”  All these promises will take place under God’s Kingdom.  (Matthew 6:9,10)
