To the Bass family: Sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" strengthen your family during this difficult time (Isaiah 61:1,2)

It is so difficult to lose our love ones. There is very little that can be said that will bring you immediate comfort.Please accept my sincere sympathy along with these words of comfort: "he heals the brokenhearted ; he binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3 Know that God will continue to give you what you need to live each day without Lawrence. He invites you to let him help. . (Jeremiah 29:12) . . .And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU. . .

My late husband, Don, also worked and retired from Lake City several years ago. Mr. Bass' name sounds very familiar to me so I'm confident that Don knew him - especially reading that he was a Christian as well.

I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around the family and give comfort as only he can give.
