    I want to offer my condolences to the Dehmer family. It truly hurts to lose a love one in death.It pains our Creator, too. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died(John 11:35) and our Creator promise to take this enemy, death, away forever at Isaiah 25:8; 1 Corinthians 15:26. I hope these words give you comfort.
