  3. Mary Ann condolence:

    Our sincere condolences to the Gordey family. The loss of a love one can be extremely difficult to cope with. What has helped many is the promise found there at Acts 24:15. There we learn about the Resurrection. By means of it we will see our love ones again. Please embrace that wonderful Hope and that my prayers are with the family…Mary Ann
