I’m so sorry for the loss of this man. My condolences go out to the MacPherson family. There’s a Scripture I’d love to share that always comforted me when I lost someone close to me in death. It’s in Revelation 21:4 which says: “And he [God] 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.” This is a promise from God that he will end death forever in the future and that we will see our loved ones again!

We are very sorry to read about Mr. Douglas loss.Its very painful and unbearable to loss someone we dearly love.At such times we all can find comfort from God's word the bible, because we receive comfort from our heavenly father.(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He is the loving Rescuer who has already shown that he can defeat enemy the death. And he promises to destroy this enemy,death once and for all. The bible says that "The last enemy the death is to be brought to nothing."(1 Corinthians 15:26) Our God promises that the dead will live again.(Isaiah 26:19) They will be brought back to life.That is the hope of resurrection. I wish that these scriptures give you some peace and comfort in this difficult time,

I was so sorry to hear of Dougie's passing. I still have memories of him and my brother sitting on opposite sides of the road on the curb with steering wheels in hand driving to who knows where. Love those days and miss all my MacPherson friends. Sending love and prayers to Esther, Laurie and all of Dougie's family, Joan Sharlan Russell
