The Coming of the Lord
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.
– 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (ESV)
My friendship with Val enriched my life and brought me joy each time we were together. This world is a better place because he was here.
Please accept my deepest condolences. He was such a kind man and he will be missed. May he rest in peace.
We were so sad to hear of Val's passing but have the assurance that he is now in the presence of the Lord. He was faithful to the end and I am sure that he was greeted with the words,
"Well done my good and faithful servant"
Our deepest sympathy and condolences to Valentina, Yuri , Mark & family.
