I wanted to express my condolences. It is hard to believe this has happened. I just wanted to express my sadness and send your family a hug and some scriptural comfort. Isaiah 25:8. Keeping your family in my prayers.

Dear Miles and Lois, although we did not know Doc if he was anything like Miles and Lois then God has a great new angel with him in His Mansion with many rooms. There is little we can say to ease your grief but know well that Doc is "Free at last, no more chains holding him, Praise God for he is Free at Last."

My deepest sympathies are with Hurdle family for the loss of your love one Gerstell and nothing can prepare you for this great loss. Although Gerstell passing is a painful experience it is comforting for your family to know that he have the hope in the resurrection. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah made this possible when he sent his son Jesus who gave his life for the resurrection hope. This hope is recorded in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. During this time of sorrow and sadness “draw close to god and he will draw close to you” (James 4:8) because he will strengthen and sustain your family at this most difficult time.
