Celebrating the life of Robert Etzler
Thank you for signing Robert Etzler's Guestbook
Please take comfort in the knowledge that God has made a provision for those lost to us in death. The Bible says, "this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercise faith in him should have life, and I will resurrect him on the last day,"(John 6:40). Jesus gives us hope in the fact that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life. So while we greive now for those lost in death, the best is yet to come.
