  1. John you will be missed by all who knew you! Rest in Peace my friend!

  2. Dearest family of Mr. Straub. It is with sadness that I offer my condolences. May you draw comfort from the fond memories you shared, and comfort from our Heavenly Father, who comforts us during our sorrows, with the resurrection promised by Christ Jesus our Lord, mentioned at John 5:28,29, where he says “Do not be amazed for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out…”. At that time there will be no more pain nor sickness nor death forever, because all those things will have passed. What a wonderful future ahead of us! (Revelation 21:4,5)
