My sincere condolences to the family of Henry Brunsing. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) While grief at the loss of Henry is great, joy at welcoming him back in the earthly resurrection will be greater. (Mark 5;42) With deepest sympathy,
My deepest sympathy to Henry's family and loved ones. It was truly a joy to know him and to be able to spend what little time we had together. His smile was so infectious and will surely not be forgotten. I will miss his company and sharing coffee and cookies with him. Memories of Henry are precious and will be held dear as we know he is at peace and with his Lord.
