    To all the Zorns who have lost their son , brother and uncle. And for us who have lost a cousin. May he rest in peace . That the Lord give you his family comfort and peace as you grieve.
    Matthew 5:4
    “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

    The Good News: God will never abandon us during our times of grief. Instead, he will always provide us with love and hope.
