To the Schilling Family: I am sorry to hear about the passing of Jane. Even though it is comforting to know that she is no longer suffering from any illness, it is still to difficult to deal with her death. It is times like this that make us look forward to the time when God will remove death from the earth (Isaiah 25:8).

James, , ,
