Celebrating the life of Sylvester “Tut” Ebert
Thank you for signing Sylvester “Tut” Ebert's Guestbook
To The Family,
Please accept my Heartfelt Condolences. The loss of a loved one is most difficult. Thankfully our Heavenly Father Jehovah God gives us a promise in Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more; neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. " Yes we have the comfort of knowing that there will come a time when death will be done away with and we will never again be separated from our precious loved ones ever again. Please be encouraged.
