Our sincere condolences to the Screws Family. We were sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God give you all the strength, comfort and peace you need, as we all wait on better days ahead (Revelation 21: 3, 4).

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family. I hope the scripture at John 11:11, where the Bible likens death to a peaceful sleep, can provide some peace at this time.
