I am blessed to have known Clarence and am deeply saddened by the news of your loss. I'll remember Clarence in many positive ways-he was always kind to me, especially when I was a kid, with a big smile and always a great story. Please know that I am celebrating his life as a good man and mourning his passing with you. I pray that peace and comfort surrounds you during this time and as you grieve. With deepest sympathy.

My condolences to the Gaster family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35) and it pains our Creator, too. Our loving Heavenly Father did not purpose his human family to grow old and die but purpose us to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever__ (1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing”; Isaiah 25:8). He promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ John 5:28.29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out” then he will reverse the aging process__ Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” What a delight it will be to see them again to enjoy life as our Creator purposed! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.
