Not sure what to say?

Perry Harvey JR always fought the good fight.He was always on the side of the poor.He was Gods gift to all of us.He was so needed and will be missed.

Proverbs 16:31 relates: “Gray headedness is a crown of beauty when it is found in the way of righteousness.” When loved ones die, family and friends are sad regardless of the long life they enjoyed. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, invites the bereaved to “throw your anxiety upon him because He cares for you.” He further promises at Matthew 5:4, “Happy are they that mourn, since they will be comforted.”

My condolences to the Harvey family at the loss of their loved one. May God be with you all. Psalms 68:20
