Dear Miller Family: It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we
love no matter how young or old they happen to be.  We are reminded in the Bible
that God sees our pain and sorrow and has promised that soon death will be no
more.(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious
loved ones to life again.(John 5:28,29) I hope in the days ahead as you reflect on the
life of Samuel, and the wonderful memories left behind, that you will find comfort in
God's promises to us for the near future.  I am so sorry for your loss.
