My prayers are with this family who we learned to love in Christ during our short time in Reston VA and Fair Oaks Church. It is hard to see a loved one go, but he will be waiting for us in heaven for the family reunion! God bless and grant you comfort during this time.Posted by: Glorybell Ramirez - Colonial Heights, VA - friend Dec 01, 2011
