May the family find comfort in loving memories, and in knowing that God is "close to those that are broken at heart; and he saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8) With deepest sympathy.

I only know of Mr. Sommer via his son, William (Bill). He must have modeled kindness, calmness, and great dedication in all that he did for those traits are the calling card of his son. May the Sommer family\'s memories of Mr. Sommer bring a smile to their faces and knowledge that he has found peace provide them comfort.

Thinking of you Bill and your family during this difficult time. Losing a parent is a very hard journey, no matter the age. Hang on to the wonderful memories, for the memories we cherish keep our loved ones close, even when there not present. Someone once told me, God takes the best and leaves the rest. Remembering you and your family in prayer.
