Mr. Payton is well respected and worked very hard. His good works will not be forgotten. There is a promise in the book of Psalms which we all look forward to. It reads: "And my people must dwell in a peaceful abiding place and in residences of full confidence and undisturbed resting-places." May you be comforted during this time of loss. Respectfully yours, Lee Sahara and family

I sincerely offer my condolence. John's death has no doubt cast a shadow over you as you go about your daily life because death bring us face-to-face with the fact that he is gone too soon. His presence will be dearly missed. So despite the pain of grief, let it be your resolve to continue to work your way through pain and grief. The rich life that he led has left many memories. Times like this make us sad. But, there is "a time to weep." (Ecclesiates 3:4) Yet you can have the hope seeing your love one. Jesus said "Do not let your be troubled". (John 14:27) Sometimes we may feel paralyzed by a tragedy such as this. Remember: God help you to endure any and every promblem they may face. He will give the "powere beyond what is normal" to go from one day to the next. (2Corinthians 4:7)
