Dear Kunkle Family,
I am so sorry to have read of your loss; please accept my sincere condolences. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is the thoughts expressed at John 5:28, 29 as well as Revelation 21:4. In these verses, we find a wonderful hope for the future of being reunited with our loved ones upon the earth the way it was originally intended--free from sickness, suffering, and death. Knowing this has comforted me greatly and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss. My parents were very good friends of Morris and Ruth from
the Antique Car Club. What a wonderful lady - heaven has a new angel.

Our prayers go out to the family. We toured with the two of them over the years. They were so much fun and a very interesting couple. May you keep their warm & fun memories close to your hearts as we will in our hearts too. Hugs
