    Mr. Lominac's love for God's word the BIble is an encouragement to the rest of us. I pray the promise of the resurrection Jesus Christ made at John 5: 28 and 29, and repeated by the Apostle Paul at Acts 24: 15, be a source of comfort to you during this sad time. Take comfort in the promise of the earthly paradise restored, a time where there will be no more pain or sorrow, recorded at Revelation 21: 3 and 4.

    You will be remembered for the work you did in Church. I know of no greater example "Bring up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he shall not depart from it."
