I didn't have the privilege of knowing Mr. Shafer. But I do know the pain of losing a loved one. I have found comfort and strength in friends and family, but especially in God's word. Jesus himself spoke of when all those in death would awaken. (John 5: 28, 29) Revelation 21: 3, 4 tells us that one day, "death will be no more". I hope you too can find comfort in these promises of our Creator.
