  1. Our prayers are with you during this difficult loss for your family. Roy, Athena, Evan, Danika, and Josh, we love you. Our hearts are heavy for you.
    2 Corinthians 1:3-4
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy and the God who is the Source of every comfort. Who comforts us in every trouble so that we may also be able to comfort those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
    In Christ,
    Guy and Tammi Scoggin
