Dear Jane, Mia, and Grahm,

We are so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband and father. We cannot imagine the sorrow you are experiencing and have no words to match such a loss. We're praying for you and asking God to bless you and keep you; to make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; to lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace (from Numbers 6:24-25). As He did for Israel, may He also do for you: may He console you as you mourn, give you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. May you be called trees of righteousness that He may be glorified (from Isaiah 61:3). We love you.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Shelley & Michael Bodine

GOD BLESS you all; after the loss of David I thought I couldn't go on! Your wonderful children and grandchildren keep you going and the wonderful memories due begin to come back. David and I always enjoyed talking with John, he had so many interesting ideas and slants on life. A philosopher in many ways. David will enjoy talking with him again!!!

Wow! I am sorry for everyone's loss. I remember John had a great taste in music and once upon a time introduced me to some books by Thich Nhat Hanh! He was too young, full of love and from what I remember a gentle guy. Love you guys! “It is only because of our misunderstanding that we think the person we love no longer exists after they ‘pass away.’ This is because we are attached to one of the forms, one of the many manifestations of that person. When that form is gone, we suffer and feel sad. The person we love is still there. He is around us, within us and smiling at us. In our delusion, we cannot recognize him, and we say: ‘He no longer is.’ We ask over and over, ‘Where are you? Why did you leave me all alone?’ Our pain is great because of our misunderstanding. But the cloud is not lost. Our beloved is not lost. The cloud is manifesting in a different form. Our beloved is manifesting in a different form. If we can understand this, then we will suffer much less."Thich Nhat Hanh
