    Doug, Sandi, and the entire Jenkins family, so very sad to hear that your father had passed away. Lived a long and full life, but the heart ache will always be with you. I hope that knowing and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ will give you peace and comfort. I know that you will surely miss him. May God make smooth the path before you in the days ahead. God bless each of you. Your friend in Christ. Ray Brown

    Condolences to Jon and all the Jenkins children, extended family also. We love you all!

  • I express my deepest sympathies to the Jenkins. I’m sure his presence will be missed by all whom he touched in earthly course. I can’t help but think of the pain the Jenkins family must be feeling during this time of bereavement. The heartache we experience when we lose a love one is something that seemingly never goes away. However a promise laid out I God’s Word the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 “….He (Jehovah God) will swallow up death forever” , has provided comfort for many. The very thought of death being non existent can be a positive thought in times such as these.

    Dear Jenkins Family: My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of Pete. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “We were created with everlasting life in view.” But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return Pete to you as it says at John 5:28,29. You can also learn more about what happens when a loved one dies at
