My condolences to the Easton family. I pray God continues to comfort and strengthen the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of William continue to comfort his family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Psalm 147:3 "He (GOD) heals the brokenhearted; he binds up their wounds." May you all have calming and pleasant thoughts during this time.
