  1. Dear Barron family, you have my deepest sympathy. The death of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort. In Gods word the Bible it says at Acts 24:15 “There Is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again and this is a promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this brings you a measure of comfort during this difficult time.
