I've known the McGlothlen family for many years. So sorry to read of Bill's death. It's sad to lose a loved one to death, but at a young age, it is rough. As a Bible student I extend comfort by way of scriptures at times like this. It doesn't matter what religion we are, we still suffer when a family member dies. Philippians 4:6,7 encourages us to pray to Our Creator with petitions and thanksgiving, then "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding can guard our hearts and mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." If no one can help us when we're overwhelmed by grief, Our Creator can. If only for a few minutes, He can calm our hearts and ease our emotions. Then we may be able to face another day. I send my sympathy. Sincerely, Cathy Taylor
