Dear Collis family. So sorry to hear of your loss. I went to school with your granddaugter, Donna and had met Fordyce once or twice. I am personally comforted by the words of the apostle Paul at 1 Corinthians 15:26 which says: "As the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing." I look forward to that time and when we will see our loved ones again. (Acts 24:15)
