Kim - Sorry for your loss. I was sooo surprised to read in Sunday paper this evening. I did not realize his health was failing. I also did not realize you had such a large family. Terry is up their building cars with Rich. My prayers are with you, Nathan and Heidi, only children I knew about, sorry.

Dear Ames family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, Terry. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will likewise comfort your family also during this most difficult time in your lives.
