I am sure this is a very hard day for the two of you. I have buried a brother and know the pain. I pray for peace for both of you as you send your sweet Chris back to His Heavenly Father. I know that the knowledge you will be reunited (one day) will sustain you until then. I also pray that memories of past carefree days will flood your heart and bring a smile to your face. Y'all are in our thoughts and hearts today....

Chris will never have to face the last enemy death, ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise.
Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."
Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
