    Written by: Arnie & Ramona Antelman

    We were so sorry to here about the death of your little Jack. Our hearts go out to you and you are being remembered in our love and prayers.

  3. Dearest Cory, Shelby and Family: Nothing saddens me more than to read of the death of a baby. My heart goes out to you all as you struggle to comprehend your loss. The mixed emotions of sadness and anger. I know it may be difficult to grasp this now, but Almighty God did not take Jack from you. He is a God of love (1John 4:8). The imperfection we inherited from Adam & Eve is to blame. Almighty God provides the glorious hope of the resurrection! (Acts 24:15). He also promised “the righteous will possess the earth and live forever upon it. (Psalms 37:11, 29).
