I would like to wish my condolences to the friend of the family of Mr Cowan. In these times you must turn to God he promises at Revelations 21;4 that "he will wipe out every tear from thier eyes,+ and death will be no more,+ neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.?? This has brought me Comfort and hopefully it will do the same for you.
We wish to send our condolences to the entire COWAN FAMILY .MAY HE REST IN PEACE .
